My 2018 sandero stepway had just had this issue exactly as described at 1yr old. Clearly it's a design fault and should be recalled. I await to see what the dealership say about it when they look at it over the next week.
What did the dealer have to say about the design fault is there going to be a recall?

Have you actually read the posts and watched the videos and the other nonsense, 1.2 engine clutch with a master cylinder?

It's all bullshit.
explain your comment please? as i do not have a 1.2? 1.5 dci is mine.? the video is not good but its true and i tried to cover as much fact as i could? i have asked for it to be removed so i can update the info for it? to make it clearer ?

could you explain in more detail please how you think its connected and how the fault took place.

as it has taken place twice now and i am not the only one?

Hi, The dealer has not said anything, Its now gone again and dealership have had it for over 3 weeks. Communication with them is all one way, Me asking but not getting any answers. I am off for legal Advice on Monday as even the RCI Finance aren't getting any answers from Dacia or the Dealer. I have also reported the fault to the DVSA as my car could have caused a accident when the clutch went.

All I will say is that if X8R go to the expense of making a repair part there must be a problem on some models.

My previous car was a Saab 93 and it had two known week points - the gearbox turret bush and swirl bar bushes. Both failed on mine and I repaired both using X8R parts. Saved me probably £1000 as the main dealer wanted to replace the whole inlet manifold and turret.

Can you explain why you think the Dacia Sandero uses that Clio II clutch pedal which appears to be a cable clutch mechanism and the part in the video is definitely not the linkage to a clutch master cylinder and where are the clutch position sensors for Hill Start Assist and Start/Stop on that assembly?

It seems that any clutch failure is irrationally being blamed on a part with no evidence it is actually fitted to Sanderos.

No, of course not.

All I was implying is that some Renault (and therefore possibly Dacia) clutch pedals have a design issue or else X8R wouldn't go to the trouble of engineering and marketing a fix.

I've have issues with first gear when the car is cold the car judders & needs to go straight to second gear. Not sure if my clutch is slipping & needs adjusting - car seems OK in other gears, once warm a little better in first gear too. Not sure if it's a clutch or gear issue. Due my 2019 annual service this month, it's done 8000 miles in total & is a 67 plate sandero stepway

A juddering clutch is usually due to clutch driven plate contamination (oil etc) or irregular wear.

I think you find that a 1.5dci engine is fitted with the 6 speed gearbox (as per the Duster) has the dual mass clutch whereas the same engine with the 5 speed gearbox (as per the Stepway) has the single mass clutch, as the 5 speed gearbox seems to be stronger than the 6 speed gearbox it's not recommended fitting a single mass clutch conversion to the 6 speed box which is another topic for discussion.

Nope, it's a 5 speed in the Sandero.
