  1. Hi Guys, I've checked the linkages, the master and the slave and all work okay. It looks like the the clutch fork has popped out of the release bearing. Can i get the clutch fork out without taking the gearbox out? I have an early v8.
  2. Clutch pedal jammed in the up position. I will loosen the bleed screw to check the pedal linkages and the master.
  3. Hi Guys, I have a problem with my clutch which happened whilst driving everything was fine until the pedal completely jammed. I have a V8 with uprated twin plate clutch. The pedal has some movement so I think the master cylinder is okay. The fluid level is about 4mm lower than normal. Has anyone had this problem before? Any thoughts, do slaves jam up or could it be the release fork?
  4. Hi Steve,

    I have been looking around for replacement carpets.

    I have a 96 Esprit v8 Azure blue, Tan leather with blue carpet and worn mats.

    I would like to replace the the 2 main middle pieces in the rear boot luggage compartment. I have read that the original colour isn't available. How close is the colour you have to the original? would it stand out for the wrong reason if just the 2 main pieces were replaced.

    The interior would be better suited to a tan colour matching the leather. I have considered changing the carpet to a tan colour but settled for a clean to see how it comes up first but have decided to try tan coloured mats. Do you by chance or is it possible to make reversible mats tan one side blue on the other? 

    I would like a quote for 2 boot carpet pieces,1 set of tan mats and for consideration  a full replacement tan coloured carpet interior.
