    There is something a bit wierd going on with the clutch engagement on my Leon. The biting point seems a bit variable or there is some kind of variable time delay between the pedal and the actual clutch doing its thing.

    The issue on the Leon was really quite noticable after driving a 1.4 85bhp Ibiza Toca for a few days. The clutch engagement on that did what you expect where as back in the leon something isn't right.

    Anyone else experienced this? Its nearly 4 years old and 30k mikes. Air in the system? Dodgy slave or master cylinder?

    That is weird, do they have a dual mass flywheel?

    Might be related to the Clutch Delay Valve? Essentially this damps the clutch engagement speed.

    It can certainly feel a bit odd at times, with the pedal position not being directly related to engagement at all times. The speed with which you operate the clutch can make it feel uncertain, essentially the biting point is a bit of a moving target due to the lag it introduces.

    It can be removed.
