  1. I've had a good look through previous posts and FAQs to see if anyone else described the same thing I've got but to no avail - apologies if this question is being re-asked! Since i've owned this Mk2f I've noticed a knocking / clunking / stall-like vibration when setting off from a standstill. This usually happened when the car was cold and running rich - just took some extra revs and a longer clutch release and it'd be fine. I just assumed it was a stalling noise as it would always go away once the engine was up to temp and got its oompf back. However today it manifest itself throughout a long drive and so I'm starting to wonder if it isn't something failing slowly. Any advice what to look for would be much appreciated! The noise almost sounds like its on the left hand side of the bay and judging by the conditions needed to make the noise I'm assuming its to do with the clutch. There isn't any noise when changing from 2nd to 3rd or when changing from 1st to second when in a slow roll (like in traffic) - I.e. the noise only happens when the engine speed is high and the drive speed is very low or zero (when the clutch is under the heaviest load?). Its a '93 Mk2f so has an un-adjustable clutch cable. Should I be looking through the inspection plate to check the friction surface thickness first? Has anyone else had this awful clonking before? Thanks for the help!
