CLutch Problem!! 95 M3

I just had the clutch and flywheel replaced 2 months ago on my 95 M3. It was a sachs stage 2 kit. It was done at the dealership. Last nite it started acting up. It wont engage into gear like it should. It feels like a very very worn out clutch. And its basically undriveable. Im going to have it checked out in a week but does ANYONE have a clue what it could be. Im thinking the clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder?????? But I really dont know what these parts exactly do. PLz HELP!!

Maybe when the dealership did the job they didn't tighten down all the bolts. Check the reservior to see if there is fluid. Check for Fluid on the floor,fluid on the floor should mean your slave cylinder is bad. Maybe if you look under the car you can look to find your master cylinder to check for any leakage there. If you don't find any problems there take it to the dealer I wouldn't think they'd give you too much of a problem if they did the work. Every once a while you hear of shops forgeting to tighten down this or tighten down that. it's possible.

if its a stage 2 kit its possible the guys at the dealer over tightened the bolts on the pressure plate... there very sensitive... has to be torqued between 16-18 ft lbs. if they over tightened them the dowel pins in them can collapse and cause the clutch to slip really bad. its probably not ur master cylinder because then u would be having brake problems too.... it could be a problem with ur slave cylinder but i doubt it because it probably would have acted up immediately... hope that helps..... keep us posted
