Daihatsu Sirion clutch wear?

Asked by Brian Ridley

The 2001 Daihatsu Sirion that I have owned since new has now done 105,000 km. Can you tell me the average life span of the clutch for this type of car? Most of my driving is short distance urban with lots of gear changing as opposed to long distance highway, which I guess would have less wear and tear on the transmission.

It’s not possible to say with any certainty when your clutch might we worn out, but you’re already doing well having clocked up 105,000 km. You can normally tell how far the clutch has worn by the height of the clutch pedal at take-up. If it’s close to the floor there’s plenty left in it, if it’s at the top of the pedal travel it’s probably getting close to worn out.
