The past few weeks we've been having trouble with our B-Max, the clutch seems to be sticking/losing pressure. Dealer (Jag/LR) already bled the clutch (so they say!) but the problem remains.

What should I do at this point?

This is certainly NOT a common problem with this engine. Only clutch problems are with the Powershift (auto) model.
What mileage has the car done ?

Are you losing any hydraulic fluid? Any drips under the car?

I hope it's not the clutch slave cylinder which is mounted inside the gearbox bell housing.
Has the clutch/brake fluid been changed every couple of years?

That's a gearbox off job. Glad it's under warranty, bit expensive otherwise!
I change my clutch/brake fluid every two years to prevent slave cylinder/wheel cylinder problems.
A garage shouldn't charge much to do it if you don't fancy it yourself, just a case of pumping in fresh fluid.
False economy not to do it.

Clutch job done, we got a entire new clutch assembly under warranty. Problem is fixed.
