    Help! Changed clutch now car wont move 🤔

    Ok, anybody have any idea what I've done wrong?
    I've fitted a new clutch and release bearing - all seemed to go well. Just tried to drive the car for the first time. It seems to select a gear ok and wants to go, but it will only 'rock' - feels like the brakes are being jammed on.... ☹️

    Have you taught the new clutch?

    You need an OBD diagnostic computer to tell the ECU that a new clutch has been fitted.

    You also need to attach the clutch actuator according to the instructions and apply the correct pre-load to the clutch arm.

    Maybe they are.
    (Handbrake is notorious on smarts for seizing the shoes to the drum if sat for longer than 10 minutes)
