I've noticed the biting point on our clutch is getting lower.
You've to push the pedal right down to change gear and it doesn't come far off the floor to start biting.
Basically, I think our clutch is completely f****d after only 24000 miles (ish).
There's no chance in hell I'm spending any money on this car, so the day the clutch becomes next to useless is the day I'll be driving it to a 'we buy any car' depot.
Utter b*stard piece of s*it of a car.

Do you think the clutch wear is to do with not using ss?

Do you mean my 'technique' (habit) of resting my foot ever-so-lightly on the clutch pedal, so that S/S doesn't trigger?
Absolutely not.

If resting your foot "ever so slightly" on the clutch pedal is sufficient to to stop s/s from triggering, it means that it's also sufficient to cause the clutch friction disc to slip and the extra heat caused by the slippage produces heat cracks in the face of the flywheel.
Definitely not recommended.

That's your opinion.
My opinion, horsecrap.
No offence.

Try seeing how minuscule the pressure is to trigger the S/S
A sparrow breathing on the pedal will do it.
There zero chance that infinitesimal pressure has any mechanical impact.

True just a brief fart will trigger the clutch sensor before anything happens.
Well it's not broken yet 🤞

Thankfully my clutch juddering captur went back to the lease company and my new captur doesn't judder at all, so some poor sod is probably having trouble with my old one

Hi peterposb, glad to hear that you have got rid of your troublesome Captur. Do you know if the problem has been fixed on the new model as I would be keen to get another one if the issue has been fixed?

You missed the word 'yet'
Your new Captur doesn't judder 'yet'.
I don't think anyone's car juddered from new, it takes varying lengths of time to manifest itself.
And it might never come at all.
Fingers crossed, eh?
