Stating the obvious, it indicates something is wrong. How many km's has it done??? It may simply be worn out.

Only brought the car recently was told it had a new clutch in it. But hadn't noticed the slight slip till recently so I feel like it's kinda just happened recently

Did they have a receipt, unfortunately some of the undercover details can't be checked, I thought it was the other way round and would slip If hot

Check and make sure the fork has free travel/slack,when the pedal is up,[cold] and again when hot,if so,it would seem the shlippage is a worn driven plate,can't think of another scenario,c'mon Lee,what d'y recon ?When it is hot,stick it in 2nd gear step on the brake and let the clutch out steadily,what happens ?

Had a bit of a look today. I could push the fork in with my hand, is that normal?like it was stiff but I could do it. Also when I let it go it slowly moved back to original position, I thought it would spring back quicker

I'm no weakling,but there is no way I could push the clutch fork in against the cover plate springs,and it should return sharply when pressure is released,so it seems the cover plate is stuffed [ or you are a descendant of Lou Ferrigno ] you are pushing the fork forward towards the engine yes ?

Yeah mate that's correct, towards the engine..

So I changed the clutch fluid yesterday afternoon, and this morning when cold I have not noticed a slip once..

Could it have been the heat from the exhaust ruining the fluid? I dont have a heat guard around the exhaust there and its a 3inch

Excess heat will destroy fluid,I also have a 3" exhaust,made a heat shield up to fit around,just allows air flow and deflects heat,even a few mm clearance will make a difference.

Awesome sounds like the go. Any chance you could show me how you've done it
