  1. Hi I seem to remember when i test drove the car, I mentioned to my missus, that she might find it weird as opposed to our old car as the clutch biting point was very high, could this have been indicative of a worn clutch, if i had the knowledge to know better? Thanks
  2. Hi Hammy Many thanks for your informative reply. I dont see how i could of worn the clutch, i am a very careful driver. This is my opinion. However from what i understand from your points please could you clarify some things, so i can be 100% sure before i take my car in. 1: How do i differentiate between a relatively newly damaged clutch and one which is really worn which would have been caused before i bought it? 2: Do i trust the delaer to tell me whether the pressure plate is weak or not. Am i right in thinking that a weak pressure plate, in turn causes the clutch to go worn. If it is a weak pressure plate, will the clutch be covered too as well as the pressure plate? Many thanks for your time Pops
  3. Hi guys Could you please take a look at the letter below and advise on any additions or ammendments i can make. Many thanks I am writing with reference to my Peugeot 307 (Reg: ), which I purchased early in November last year. I have recently discovered that the clutch has failed, it is slipping when warm. This has been confirmed by your service department. Who road tested the car. Upon speaking to Peugeot warranty department and logging a complaint, they have advised that the clutch will need to be inspected. Which may possibly result in me being landed with the bill for the labour and part – if the clutch has failed due to wear and tear (the car has only done about 15200 miles!). I have since spoke to Graham on your service department, who through yourself has authorised to strip the gearbox to inspect the clutch with no cost to myself (Thankyou). My grievance is that, when I purchased the car, and I did so for the benefit of reliablilty, it being covered by manufacturers warranty, and being properly inspected by the dealer. I did not however envisage to be landed for a bill for repair of the clutch in less than 2 months of purchasing the car. May I add that this may be still covered under warranty in which case my worries are unfounded. My worry is that when your service department do strip the gearbox, and if they do find the failure to be down to wear and tear, (in which case the warranty will not cover) what will happen. I am not prepared to pay for the repair. I purchased the car in good faith in the belief that it is in a working condition. I have logged a case with the RMIF/NCS and with their advice I am sending this email. I hope you understand my situation and I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks for your time.

    Hi Guys Just a query really. Barclays had till the 14th to file a defence which they havn't, as of yet. I am aware of taking into accout postal delays etc. But from reading various posts how long should i wait before filing for judgement as a minimum. i filed my claim at the court and not through MCOL. How would the courts handle Barclays filing a defence late? Could anybody explain what setting the judgement aside is please? Many thanks for your time.

    Hi Again Ive just called My local court, they state that id probably be around Oct/Nov time for a court date. Could anyone advise in your experiences what would be the best course of action at this stage, bearing in mind i need the money for 14 september. I am considering accepting their offer, but in light of the fact that it is already being processed by the courts, would i be able to negotiate at all. Your help and advice is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Guys Just panicking a little here, I received an offer from Barclays £1715 (Original claim £2782), my claim is currently being processed in the courts. And they have acknowledged and have till 12th July to file a defence. I am going on holiday on the 14th September, my local court have been very quick so far (i used the N1 route). What in your experience would be the likelihood of barclays settling before i go on holiday, im just debating whether to take up their offer or not. Many Thanks in advance.

    I got a letter from the court giving details of my claim, and when they had to acknowledge by and the day after i got another letter saying barclays had acknowledged my claim, it said something like the defendant intends to defend all the claim, and also gave the name and address of the people who filed the acknowledgment. I will double check when i get home, but am pretty sure.

    Hi Guys I filed my Claim at my Local county court (Bolton) on 14th June, Barclays Acknowledged my claim 4 days later on the 18th!! Since they had till 2nd July to acknowledge the claim, does this mean that they have another 14 days from the 18th to file their defence or 14 days from 2nd July?

    Hi Again Could somebody clear something up for me, in the particulars of claim: c) The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year, from [date when the money became owed to you] to 14/06/2007 of £362.82 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of judgment or earlier payment at a daily rate of £0.50. The "date when the money became owed to you", is this the date of my first charge? Thanks
