Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon
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.
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.
