Heavy is ok, when you say it sticks, do you mean it doesn't engage or disengage properly when going through the gears? Otherwise i'd just leave it until it either becomes too annoying to live with or it starts to slip. Or is it at the annoying stage? Good effort on the other stuff, less squeeking is always a bonus in a bx :)

At the moment, yes. At times, my 2CV has been the 'modern' motor on the fleet!

at my peak, i could do a clutch on a bx in under 4 hours. They are by far the easiest car i have ever done a clutch on, its just a matter of practise. a bx clutch is really straight forward, and there are quite a few places you can save time compared to a normal car. The only problem i used to have is alignment, but i have a highly tuned stick for that now!
