Customer Question

Hi S40 T5 Volvo '06 turbo bought new 6 speed, now 110k miles ....clutch slipping. Wife drives 6 miles to work. was there a common problem and or did my wife's driving such a short distance likely cause this. Could there be dirt in the master cylinder preventing full engagement? thx

The clutch hydraulic system is rarely ever to blame for slipping since its manually used in the pressure state where as its pushing on the pressure plate to disable the clutch. The shirt distance has no bearing though driving style plays a giant role in clutch wear, also engine oil or transmission oil leaks into the bell housing can cause this. Next step is removing the transmission to check the flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate.
