hello everyone. I have a 1999 2.5tdi (102) which has suddenly starting eminating an awful smell from the gearbox/clutch area ( smell is awful when you lift the bonnet!). it smells like binding brakes/burning clutch, but the clutch does not appear to be slipping when driving. Can clutches wear out without slipping? do you think that a replacement is required, its done 67000 miles. If it needs replacing, any recommendations for the newcastle area, and what price can i expect to pay. many thanks in advance for any help you can give. Peter

Handbrake on,start up,put in second and try to set off...
If engine stalls,then clutch good..
