Hello,

I have a 2013 C4 1,6 eHDi with an EGS gearbox. The car is remapped to about 135bhp and has an increase of +40Nm to the standard torque.

I noticed recently that if i push it harder, the clutch slips on a gear change. But if the gear is already changed, and i give it the beans there is no clutch slip. The clutch slips only during the gear change.

I would like to ask if the clutch in this car can take the extra +40Nm of torque, and the slipping i have is due to wear, or if the clutch cant take this extra torque?
I was lead to believe that since the clutch only slips during the gear change, a simple recalibration would fix this issue?

Try the hard reset method first. The clutch isn't self calibrating.

Mine does a similar thing - have done a hard reset a couple of times but no change - and mine isn't mapped

Have now had software update, clutch recalibration and reset to new owner done and my car no longer does the slipping clutch and is very much better to drive

That's good to know. How old is yours?
