Engine Mechanical problem
2006 Other SEAT Models Front Wheel Drive Manual 31000 miles

Seat Altea 1.9 tdi 31000. Recently car juddered and appeared to stall. On trying to restart just juddered. Clutch Stuck to floor and gear stick in 4th. RAC. Man said slave cylinder shattered. Fitted new one. Clutch was still top heavy and wouldn't clear. Taken to Seat dealer who stripped it down and blamed on clutch plate being completly worn one one side. Not covered by warnty. Mechanic friend says that I should have noticed some slipping if this was the case and would not have caused such a clutch colapse. No slipping ever noticed. Seat dealer says that it could have occured very quickly so no slipping would have been noticed and still insist that this is the cause of not clearing. Mechanic friend thinks dealer explanation very suspect. Anyone got any ideas
