Whistling noise ?
#1
The old timer has developed a peculiar whistling/whining noise from under the bonnet this evening , which ceases completely if the clutch pedal is depressed . Any ideas ladies or gentlemen , the floor is open . . . cheers for any input in advance .

Probably the thrust bearing on the clutch, sounds like a new clutch may be around the corner.

Cheers for a prompt response dude , was only looking on your site a couple of nights ago , didn't think I'd be after your input so soon :eek:
I did suspect thrust bearing from limited knowledge but do not understand the implications , ie time to repair/replace or as you have suggested a brand new 2nd hand clutch :woop: gotta keep smilin it's only money :brickwall: bugger !

A new clutch is a lot better than used , probably cost you about £90 for the parts unless you find one on ebay.

I would NEVER fit a S/H clutch,it's not worth the hassle.
Repair properly,repair once.

Don't know what anyone else thinks but 5 hours would be tops... and most of that would be drinking brews and staring vacantly at diagrams... that's me any how! Smile

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

A Grand! Seems mental... are you going to the main dealer??
What's the quoted hourly rate for labour?
£500 would be a reasonable fee with top quality parts.

Make sure the oil is topped up/ changed in the gear box afterwards and there is no leaking present on the drive shaft seals.
