    I've got a problem with getting my MG TF into gear. It'll go into gear when the engine is off, but when the engine is on, it doesn't. Just makes a screeching noise. I've checked the fluid levels and seems good although slightly dirty. Clutch pedal only has resistance from about half way down...

    Hi Everyone, Driving my 2000 Rover 25 GTi (PG1 gearbox) yesterday I was pulling away in 1st when something sounded like it had broken from the gearbox area and subsequently then the car could not deliver power to the wheels. When the car is idle, you can hear a very slight rub which wasn't...

Does anyone know if there is...

    With the subframe transplant planned I've noticed the underfloor pipe is corroding badly at the rear so thought it an opportunity to replace with either copper pipe or stainless braided hose. I like the braided hose option as it is far easier to run, but I have no real experince. Would some...

    So I'm going to be fitting a 120 engine in my 105 soon, Im going to keep the IB5 box, So I know I'll have to swap the flywheel over from the 1.4 lump, my question is will a 1.4 clutch be up to the job? I cant see why not.... And if not will a 1.8 clutch fit on the 1.4 flywheel? Or is it just...

    I've got the engine out of my car at the moment and I might as well have the clutch changed while the mechanic is at it. Its a VVC 1.8 1998 MGF. Would you recommend I get another OEM clutch or spend a bit more for an AP clutch? Are there any advantages of getting the AP clutch? Many thanks...

    One of the most overlooked and easiest things to maintain is the clutch fluid, I try to change mine at least once a year, two max. Its overlooked as changing the clutch fluid is not on any service schedule, it should be as debris and worn out fluid is often the cause of cylinder and seal wear...

    Hi, Did the repair on the slave clutch cylinder today. Think I've done it right after a lot of swearing and sweating. The knackered seal in the piston jammed half out so had to remove the slave cylinder housing first as I couldn't get the clevis pin arrangement out. Grr. As a result of all...

    Hi there, The clutch on my MGF 1.8 kseries(118bhp) has been quite stiff ever since I bought the car seven months ago. Thought this was normal for these cars at the time and did'nt think much of it. The garage I boght the car from said the clutch had been done not long before I bought the car...
  16. MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    Pulling out of a junction earlier this evening, I accelerated up to about 20mph in first, then changed into second and there was no drive, the clutch just slipped and revved. The clutch pedal feels really light, but when the clutch is fully depressed it is impossible to put it in gear. I managed...
