    weird thing happened to me saturday. was stuck in the que at the drive thru and instead of poppin it into nuetral, i held my foot on the clutch. when i went to take off, the clutch just kicked out at me causing me to stall. thort that was weird. then i noticed after 5 min of driving the clutch only came half way back out. later that night the mrs went to drive the car and the clutch was all the way to the floor. she had to pull it back up with her foot and push it back in as it wouldnt let her engage first either. but its been fine ever since..... has this happened to anyone else? and what could possibly of caused any of this?
    cheers,

    Yep, I've heard of a few people here with the same issue, so it must be fairly common.

    Can't remember the cause / remedy though - perhaps do a search..

    I have same problem with the clutch coming back half way but only seams to happen when i tramp it around quick change from 1st to 2nd and then it will only come back half way.
    Would be good to know how to fix it tho, ive change the fluid thought that would fix it but its still there

    I think holden were replacing the clutch and pedal box putting the ls7 clutch in but MY9.5 onwards had the ls7 clutch from factory mine falls into this category and it sometimes does what veessv is saying so haven't bothered chasing it up I'll put a good h/d clutch in one day!

    It's the slave cylinder not being able to keep up with the clutch on the in and out movement. Mine kept sucking up air so changed the whole unit slave unit clutch and went to bigger braided lines also.

    being a 2012 build car, thought they would have revised it. but i guess the issue remains. oh well. hasnt happened again as of yet. ill mention it when it goes in for its 3000km service.

    I have a 2010 SS ute and have also suffered this issue, only once but that's enough to know it's not correct.

    Also i have noticed at times the clutch slightly slipping under fairly strong acceleration, on more than one occasion for sure.

    A trip to annoy my local Holden dealer will be undertaken shortly by the looks of it.

    What clutch is in these things from factory anyway ?

    Whatever is in them, i would hate to see the result of some decent power being put through them.

    Cheers.

    They're not great. Built to a price, like everything else.

    Sticking is very common. I had minor slip as well. Both issues will be warranty fixes for you guys.

    I took my 07 back a few months back shortly after buying it cause the clutch pedal only came up half way when I was givin it some beans. They replaced the pedal assembly and it's been fine ever since

    I replaced my clutch completely, needed replacing-worn out, it was the original, every now and again this would happen, I was just waiting for it to fail, Mal wood does an aftermarket slave for these, as the box is going to come out anyway to do it might as well do the clutch, full kit from vic performance parts was $700 for an extreme made kit, comes with braided lines, extended bleeder an modified slave cylinder, clutch plate, flywheel, pressure plate
