Hello all- (long time since I reared my head for some of you)
I just got done replacing my clutch. Did everything- pressure plate, disk, throw-out bearing.
So I took it for a little test drive down the road with the transmission tunnel off and i'm getting what sounds like throw-out bearing rattle. When I get on the gas I'll get one particular rattle/knocking type sound and at higher speeds when I disengage the clutch I get another typical T/O bearing rattle sound. Not 100% of the time though. I don't want to believe I pooched any of the parts during install but I suppose it's quite possible. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the tiny little plastic clip that is used to hold the T/O bearing to the lever "during installation only" (according my manual). Is the rattle coming from the lever pulling the bearing back when I let the clutch engage and when it (the plastic clip) eventually breaks off and leaves the bearing against the fingers the sound will go away?
Everything feels great mechanically; it just sounds like ass. A great sign I'm sure.
Thanks for any input.
