I'm just wondering if anyone else has had an issue whereby accelerating in hard in 6th gear appears to cause the clutch to slip.

However, it doesn't appear to happen in other gears. It also seems to be more prominent when the car is loaded. 

I had a new clutch 2 years and the car has not done many miles since then. Most of the driving is on the motorway as well.

Any ideas?


Many thanks

Yep clutch slip always starts from the highest gear.
