clutch thud

4 posts in this topic

I'm not the most mechanical of people but I've noticed a thud whenever I release the clutch while moving. It won't happen when braking or accelerating. I had the transmission mount replaced the other week any ideas before I take it to the garage for a look.

Is the thud coming from under the gear lever? Or further towards the rear of the vehicle? 

 

You said it won't happen when braking or accelerating. Are you releasing the clutch with no throttle input when it happens then?

I'd be checking engine mounts, engine stay (the dogbone from top of block to the firewall) and rear diff bushes.

 

For the first two -- rev the engine in neutral and see if it moves around too much.  For the rear diff bushes, crawl under the car and have a peek - they're pretty obvious when gone.

Went for a drive today sound like it's at the front of the engine at very least engine bay. Sorry I was meaning it won't happen if I plant my foot on the accelerator or brake. Releasing the clutch with or without throttle give the same noise. Think I will grab one of the guys for the garage and go for a lap of the block. Thanks for the help

Engine stay feels pretty solid and doesn't seem to move much. Shitty weather and no garage wasn't so keen to crawl under the car. Thanks for a starting point
