The Smell of a Burnt Clutch Will Not Go Away

In many respects this is a likeable car, and it is certainly economical in its fuel consumption.

However, whenever the clutch has to work harder than for a simple gear change, e.g. when joining a main road at a difficult junction or crossing a steep bridge or reversing any distance, a smell of burning pervades the cabin which can only be caused by the clutch. Recently the burning smell has started to occur during simple forward motion.

Toyota GB have been informed and neither the supplying dealership nor another Toyota dealership have been able to diagnose the problem. I have driven cars with manual gearshifts for more than 50 years and have never experienced this smell of burning, Back to a Toyota dealership in a few days from now for another examination, but I am far from confident that this problem will be solved.
