Question about 2004 BMW Z4

1 Answer

My new clutch on my Z4 makes a loud crunching or clicking sound when I press down on it (on it"s release as well, just not as loud) and it's getting worse. The garage that did the work says I need a new sensor but I don't understand how it has nothing to do with the work they did as it's not ever happened prior to replacing.

Sounds like you need a new shop. If they just replaced the clutch the sound is most likely from an improper install. If you had warning lights or check engine lights I would agree it's the sensor but at this point it sounds like they didn't get the clutch in correctly or the throw out bearing and the more you drive it the worse it is going to get. They just don't want to drop the Tranny and admit they messed up without getting paid.

Why is clutch pedal making a single clicking noise everytime it is released ?


The click you are hearing is most likely coming from the clutch safety switch, which prevents the car from starting unless the clutch is fully depressed. Some vehicles use a relay to activate/deactivate the safety feature when the clutch pedal is cycled.

Loud snapping noise heard when changing gears


From the way you've described it your gear stick linkages maybe on there way out. When changing gear does the car resist getting into gear?

If it's more of a crunching sound then I would try double de clutching, to do this you need to:
change gear as usual but instead of holding down the clutch throughout the gear change hold it down to take the vehicle into neutral then release the clutch then push the clutch down again and change into desired gear.
To change down it's basically the same principal but you push down the clutch to put the vehicle into neutral then push the throttle down just to pitch revs then release the throttle and push the clutch down to change into your desired gear, if it won't go in to gear easily then rather the throttle until it does.

You can go onto youtube and search for double de clutching and I'm sure some results will come up

hope this helps!

When i push clutch in it makes a grinding noise.Hard to shift into first.When i come to a stop it acts like it wants to stall


Sounds like the clutch release plate or release bearing are damage or disintegrated. Because one or both of these parts are damaged the clutch does not properly disengage which will result in crunching gear changes at slow speed and also clutch dragging at lights (wanting to stall) etc.

You'll need to split the transmission from the engine block to investigate.

My 2004 audi s4 makes gronchy noise when i put it in to 2nd gear when cold whats causing it?


If I've understood your problem correctly.....when changing from 1st gear into second the box is giving a metal on metal crunching sound?
  • This would be the syncromesh ring which is not equalizing the speed correctly.
  • The problem usually happens when there is wear on the same part.
  • Check to make sure that the correct transmission fluid has been used in the box.
  • To alleviate the problem and delay the time when it will require attention, use the double de- clutch method of changing gears, especially when the transmission is cold.
  • The double de-clutch is carried out in the following way.
  1. When in gear and changing from 1st gear to 2nd, change into neutral and release the clutch and then depress again before selecting 2nd gear....It is not required to rev the engine in the neutral position when changing up....
  2. When changing down rev the engine when the shift lever is in neutral for each change.
You'll soon get the hang of it and stop the crunching sound, protecting the box at the same time....

Just had new clutch fitted on 02 ford focus 1.6 now making noise but stops when i press clutch down


A couple of things comes to mind, when you press the clutch you disengage the transmission. When the clutch is not pressed the transmission still spins inside even when it is in neutral. Sounds like a bearing inside the transmission is making noise, did they put fluid back in the transmission? Also another common source of noise is the throw out bearing, it is on the input shaft, it is the actual part that presses against the clutch pressure plate, usually though they make noise when the clutch is pressed and quiet down when released.

Grinding Noise When Clutch Is Depressed, Lights Flicker


you may need to have your clutch cable adjusted ... it is most likely not releasing the clutch fully and grinding against the flywheel

Loud clanking noise in gear if the clutch is not engaged


Almost sounds like a throwout bearing problem. Either way, bring the car back and make them fix it. It will be covered under the warranty so dont let them try to convince you otherwise.
