Flapping noise from gearbox/clutch

Recommended Posts

polojon88

Hi,

   I've got a flapping sound coming from my clutch/ gearbox on my 2000 polo 6n2 afk engine type (never buy an afk engine! ggggrrrr)

 

When the engine is in neutral driving or stationary there's  no odd sounds (sounds sweet as a nut, no tapping nothing :) neither on tick over or revs :)

 

When any gear is engaged you can here the flapping, at any speed 😞

But when you engage the clutch the sound is gone 😕

 

Bit odd any ideas?

"when any gear is engaged" = while changing gear

"but when you engage the clutch" = raise the clutch pedal

 

Sounds like clutch release bearing is worn or loose at one side.

It sits around the main input shaft and helps move the rotating clutch friction disc off the spinning flywheel surface.

 

Normally changed when fit new clutch kit. Sometimes kept when change just friction disc but keep pressure plate if the finger tips are not too worn.
