Hi,

So the gearbox warning light comes on when my 2013 5-door High Up! 1.0MPI (74hp, ASG) is driven uphill in a traffic jam (below 10km/h, or 6mph) for an extended period of time, and after checking the fault codes via an OBD scanner, it shows that the clutch is overheating, is it possible to replace just the clutch disc or could it be an clutch actuator issue? It drives absolutely normal otherwise.

Any help would be appreciated.

It's hard to know if the clutch has simply worn out, as they will all do eventually, or if the clutch has worn as consequence of an actuator fault....

I can imagine that a faulty, or incorrectly set up, actuator could be like driving with a foot on the clutch pedal in a manual....

The vehicle drives fine with no slip during normal driving, and the clutch does bite pretty well under hard acceleration.

That said, I think you're bang on with the foot on the clutch pedal.

Side note, I found a replacement clutch for the ASG box if anyone is interested.

Either the sensor is faulty, or the clutch really is is overheating.
If it's overheating, it is slipping, even if not perceptibly.
