03 1.8 TDCI Clutch problems? - Beejy

Hoping you may be able to help me.

What are the early signs that a clutch is on its way out?

My 03 plate Ford Focus 1.8 Tdci estate's clutch feels 'weird' occasionally - slightly stiffer and 'higher' when pulling away in first. It's better when the car warms up and is not noticable once out of first....any ideas?

The car has just done 75,000 miles and has been a complete lemon since I bought it two and a half years ago, so I'm expecting the worst ;-)

Many thanks in advance
