You will need to replace the clutch cable, it goes from the top of the clutch pedal to the top of the transmission.

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...

Firebird clutch periodically goes bang when engaging


If you have a cable operated clutch then check the engine mounts especially the rear mount or reaction rod on a transverse transmission.. If you had a clutch problem it would be there all the time and the indications are that it would be slipping , shuddering , grabbing and generally be a pain in traffic. I would be looking for a reason to allow the engine /transmission to get out of alignment and cause binding of the drive shafts . If front wheel drive check cv joints and suspension points . If rear wheel drive check for problems in the slip joint or "u" joints.

So... are you ready for my clutch question? I had the clutch on my 5 speed 2001 Elantra replaced with new components. The clutch would vibrate or pulsate at the pedal when depressing it. Also a clicking...


So, are you ready for some help with your clutch problem? I will give rhe shop the benefit of doubt and assume they didn't check everything..They did the simple process of parts replacement which it will never be known whether or not you even needed a clutch.. Should we continue?

HOW TO KNOW WHEN SHALL I CHANGE CLUTCH DESK?


To reduce clutch disc/plate problems, avoid riding the clutch whilst driving, ie having ur foot on the clutch pedal when the engine is in operation, especially wqhen the vehicle is in motion. You see the clutch disc is sandwiched between the flywheel of the engine & the pressure plate. When the driver presses the clutch pedal, the sandwiching of the clutch plate is released, so therefore no drive is being transmitted from the engine to the road wheels. This gives an effect as if the vehicle is in neutral (engine can be revved, with no movement or propulsion of the vehicle). When the driver releases the clutch pedal, the clutch disc is now sandwiched tightly causing the drive to be transmitted to the road wheels which will now cause the vehicle to be propelled.

Clutch discs are only replaced when there are problemes with clutching in and changing gears. After constant pressing of the clutch, the asbestos material on the clutch disc after a period grinds down (clutch disc becomes thinner), which in turn will reduce friction characteristics when all the elements are sandwiched. This causes a slipping effect, preventing the drive from being transmitted to the road wheels efficiently. This causes other problems such as high fuel consumption, erratic engaging of gears, hard selecttion of gears, heavy vibration of the vehicle, stalling; just to name a few. In most cases an unusual smell of the clutch disc is observed.

Also just by resting ur foot on the clutch pedal while engine is running can be dmagaing too. You see the clutch release bearing rests on the pressure plate, so when the clutch pedal is pressed by the driver, there is a degree of friction being placed on the bearing because the pressure plate is always rotating with the engine. The clutch release bearing is stationery until the clutch pedal is pressed by the driver, which sends it into the moving pressure plate, so less pressing on the clutch pedal the less friction between the bearing and the pressure plate. Only operate/press/place foot on the clutch when necessary
