Hello all
I have a 09 plate 107 verve reg in march 2009 i have done approx 27800 miles i have had to have a new clutch fitted to day. With all the forums and info on the web I was wondering if this was a normal amount of miles for a clutch to last .I do mainly 50 miles a day motorway driving having spoken to dealer it would seem i have the newer clutch? any answers appreciated.

Yours is a phase II car with the 190mm clutch. This is a robust, trouble free unit, a World apart from the fragile 180mm version in the phase I cars.

It's either been driven for a while in a maladjusted state(18-28mm free play at the pedal end is essential), or poor driving technique has killed it - it's a diddy engine with little torque and most people give them far to many revs off the line.

In short, your car is not one of those years with the weak clutch, and a glance at the old part will tell in a second if it's broken or just worn. If its worn its either poor adjustment or drivers left foot - no other possible cause.

The clutch on my 107 started slipping after 16,000 miles [07 plate]. The garage where I had it serviced advised a new one. I'd had the car from new and am a careful driver. I only do about 3,000 miles per year so was a bit disappointed. I complained to Peugeot who agreed to pay for the clutch but not the labour. Clutch was £250 and labour was £250 so I only had to pay half the cost.

Phase I clutches, such as yours Twink, were known the be problematic. The clutches redesigned from the phase II onwards, and Navs failed because of problem elsewhere.

I'm interested in why people automatically think low mileage = low wear? Unless the vehicle is stored in a climate controlled garage then low mileage = higher wear to friction consumables such as brakes and clutches.
