Heavy Clutch In Qashqai?

Post by Coffezeroman » Wed Jun 09, 2021 7:10 pm

Hey I recently bought a 2012 Qashqai+2 and the clutch feels really hard and heavy.

My leg gets sore from it.

Is this normal or is the clutch bad or something else?

It shifts and drives nicely its just has a heavy pedal.

Its a 1.5 DCI 110HP

If you can , try a similar car and spec - if not , its likely that the clutch is worn of the splines on the gearbox are very dry/corroded - but this is unlikely
