2003 Hyundai Tiburon making a weird noise

Hi TIA for looking at my question. I have a 2003 Tiburon GT and the clutch has recently been replaced. I was hearing a grinding noise coming from the front end of the car ..so I assumed it was the front bearing. Took it to my mechanic and he replaced the front wheel bearing (needed it anyway). Now I still have a weird noise coming from the transmission I think, everytime I disengage the clutch pedal whether in gear or not i get a rattling grinding scraping noise coming from the front drivers side. When I put it in gear and start to release the clutch it makes this aweful noise. If I depresss the clutch the sound will go away..No problem going into gear...No loss of power...No harsh vibrations in the car...maybe a little vibration in the clutch pedal. I am quite proficient in autos but never heard this before and several others I know haven't either. One friend said maybe the clutch release bearing....Please help I love this car and don't want to make it worse.

Thanks Matt

Hello mpolci...The 2003 Tiburon was sold to the public with a defective clutch, it failed due to warpage and bad pressure plate... among other things. There are MANY class action lawsuits. Did you resurface or replace the flywheel when the clutch was replaced? Did you go with an aftermarket clutch kit, or factory? Also the slave cylinder on the 03 was known to have a defective valve.
You can try checking the levels and bleeding the system and if you still have problems, then it could be a release bearing, a loose clutch pad, or a broken pressure plate spring....If the clutch is still under warranty, i would return it to the installer.
Good luck, i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.

I recently replaced the clutch in my 2003 Hyundai Tiburon after doing so my car will not go into first or second gear but is able to go into all other gears. Could you please help me with this problem


Sounds like the new clutch was not lined up properly before refitting! If it was done at a garage return it to have the clutch taken out and refitted properly by them! Or did you do it yourself?

hmmm... 80mph @6000 rpm is not normal. you are needing a lot of power to produce 80mph. it seems clutch assembly needs replacement. clutch assembly includes clutch disc, fly wheel, and release bearing. might as well check your clutch master if the vacuums are still working properly. this might be the culprit to the stuck up clutch pedal.

after replacing the clutch assembly, you can reach 80mph @ 4000-4500rpm

will try to assist you. did you have your clutch replaced professionally? if it's a popping or cracking sound when accelerating or turning, it's most likely a c.v. axle going bad. either on driver or passenger side in the front of the car right?if it is a bad c.v. axle it will pop and crack when you turn wheel from left to right at low r.p.m. if not this,you may have brake issues. either it's a grinding sound while accelerating or decellerating,as long as cars in motion the noise will persist.try tapping your brakes while in a parking lot in slow gear,hear something from driver front,have a passenger with the widow down on passenger side, hear it from front passenger side? the thing i go by is what i hear when i test drive to diagnose an issue with a vehicle is,axles?popping and cracking when turning the steering wheel from left to right at low speed. [axle problem] grinding,scraping sound? brake issues! hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com and we are here for you 24/7 7days per week thank you!!!!

2003 Tiburon Gt 6spd won't go into gear


There is a "simple" slave cylinder modification for this car which helps with clutch issues. I performed it on my used 2003 Tiburon GT 6 speed and it helped quit a bit actually. Go to http://www.newtiburon.com and type "slave cylinder mod" in the search. You should be able to find a DIY there. I highly recommend you do this mod to your 2003-2005 tiburon if you're having clutch problems. Good luck!
