    bleed the clutch, not hard to do, there is a nipple on the slave cylinder i believe, you can reco the master yourself if you handy with a spanner or buy a gasket kit and new slave,thats where id start,

    I just had an issue with my clutch losing copious amounts of fluid. I replaced my master cylinder, and after adjusting the actuator travel my car drives better than ever. I did the accelerator too while I was there and can't recommend it enough. My pedals have no play at all now, and my every day crunching (even reverse) is a thing of the past.

    Yep i need to do mine too, slight shudder in first, but the clutch is strong, bet its the slave and/or master.

    it'd most likely be driveshaft, engine mount or the gearbox itself.

    When inner axles go they can make an annoying clunk with any movement to the drivetrain, accelerating/deaccelerating, changing gear etc.

    seeing as its doing it on the spot that probably cancels out any suspension issues.
