First Anniversary
I bought a second hand car from a dealer was clicking when I started the engine i was informed by the dealer that it was because the car had been sat not being driven I've had it now for about 4 weeks and now my mechanic says it's my clutch I can't drive it now and when I contacted the garage I purchased it from they said it is wear and tear but I have saw them with cars up on a lift being checked and work done so clearly they should've checked the clutch and at least informed me to get it checked ao I had all the info to buy the car

    Clutches and brakes are wear-and-tear items and are often not covered by warranties. Clutches normally slip, not click, what has your mechanic said is the problem, clutch bearing/master cyclinder?
