    Suffered a front nearside puncture yesterday morning 5 mins after leaving our New Forest CL, having changed it in the rain:( the clutch started juddering in !st gear. Never had a problem before, but it got worse during our drive down to Brighton. Picking up a new tyre from ATS Brighton West lunchtime today (who went the extra mile to obtain a new Continental Vancocamper for me ASAP, thanks Colin) but I'm worried about the clutch failing on our way home to the Costa Blanca. Can anyone recommend a trustworthy mechanic in this area?
    Thanks, Dave

    Dave, just a thought as to what may have caused your clutch to judder, if you hav,nt used spare wheel before I would check its same size as your other wheels, hope you get sorted.

    Thanks for the suggestion Eric, but the spare wheel is the same size.

    Peter, thanks for your replies, unfortunately we were stuck in traffic all afternoon after NOT getting our new spare tyre from ATS - some waste-of- space in the depot forgot to add it to todays deliveries - so I didn't receive your replies until it was too late to visit you. We will be on the 9.39am Shuttle tomorrow morning, so will just have to keep our fingers crossed that we don't get a puncture or more problems with the clutch on the way home.

    Dave
