So I've got a 2003 V70 with the M56 manual transmission. OEM Clutch kit and OEM Slave cylinder were installed 28k and 2 years ago. Now the clutch 'bite' point is getting higher and higher on the pedal. I've called three local independent Volvo shops to ask their advice. Two of the three said it was likely an issue with the pressure plate that is causing the bite point to get higher on the pedal. No slipping of clutch, fyi. Anyone else with a manual V70 or history with another manual Volvo and have experience with this? My big question is should I expect it to get worse to the point where the pressure plate won't let me disengage the clutch, or is there a reason to believe it might stop getting worse? I've stopped putting any money into the car at this point until I can get to a level of confidence that it won't fail, but I'm not sure I can get to that point considering the difficulty to truly diagnose this issue without committing to 8 hours of labor expense; essentially $1300 for another clutch job. So, any wise sages here have some knowledge they want to drop?
