I am hoping to save money here.

My clutch seems to be going on my 325i coupe, I am looking for a miracle, in as much as when I had an E30 320i and the battery was failing (which I didn't know) the car took it upon itself to save battery by reducing the power to the windows and rear window demister etc.

My 325i brake warning light has been on for about two months (I am broke) and I have not had it fixed yet, I shall wait till they start squeling. What I am hoping for is that a BMW safeguard has been kicked in that it realises I am ignoring the brake warning light, so it has took it upon itself to loosen the clutch, basically saying, if you dont stop and fix this (brakes) I will stop you myself.

Of course this means that it is a BMW conspiracy (safety measure), it also means my car is like 'Christine' and it has a mind of its own, but rather that, than buy a new clutch.

Am I mad, or is there a possibilty that what is happening is true

No it doesnt do that... and for the safety of all around you.. including your self... please get your brakes fixed... it might not be because your pads are low.. you might have the start of a larger problem.. that might end in a brake failure... your choice on that one...

As for the clutch.. no... it doesnt have a third sense... it isnt realizing that your brakes are in pain and help out... get that fixed to...

Good Luck,

Les
