Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My clutch on my Peugeot 406 estate was vibrating and squeaking when pressing slightly and fully down on the pedal. After looking under the bonnet down the front of clutch / gear box and spotting the clutch leaver which I can see is hydrolic ly operated the leaver that presses and depresses the thrust bearing against the pressure plate rattles by hand. Anybody who has any information or advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks for reply. Would the spring be on the inside of the bell housing and would this stop you from being able to select gears when the engine is running. When the engine is not running its letting me select gears. If I put it into gear with my foot on the clutch then start it it jumps .

Hi there
Your rattling noise in engine bay ,dose it do it only when you start up, and if so dose the rattle go when the oil light on dash goes out, If yes then its either Low in oil/your parking on a slope/engine bearings worn/oil filter change and change oil to 30/50 oil.
you should only downshift to 1st whan stopped but you can change up and down the g/box without a clutch with correct Revs

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

In a manual 2001 Hyundai Accent, the clutch cable could be adjusted. The adjustment point is on the cable 'pad' where it enters the firewall in the engine compartment.

To adjust, the slack or free play must be decreased. This is done by turning the adjusting nut clockwise. Check back by pressing on the clutch pedal to your preference.

406 estate 2ltr very loud squeeling noise when change from 1st to 2nd gear ok once in 2nd and above is this the clutch ? can smell a slight burning smell when under the bonnet


Might be the clutch but unlikely if only confined to a single gear and it is usually possible to make a faulty clutch produce noise when stationary to help diagnosis.

If the clutch will transmit the full engine torque without slipping there is unlikely to be much wrong with either the centre plate or the cover. Problems with the release mechanism can often be felt through the clutch pedal and clearly be heard to be in sympathy with clutch pedal operation.

I suggest you check the transmission oil level and then look around for other possible causes if another "look" at the clutch produces no results. Auxilliary belt perhaps...

Hi these clutches are actually hyraulic so first id check the oil in the clutch bowl container under the bonnet on the drivers side if you havent already, secondly you can adjust the clutch slightly under the inside of car on the pedal it has a nut you remove then just turn the thread to suit you cant miss it really, however i would be more inclined to think your problem is the clutch slave cylinder on the side of gearbox it would cause this problem when worn as oil leaks past. To locate it just look on passenger side of gearbox and follow the hydraulic hose, they are easy to replace (just unbolt) and not too expensive.
