any chance the clicking your hearing is an axle?
Got my car a few months ago, and ive been having a problem with the clutch making a loud, repetitive clicking sound when the clutch pedal is both pushed in and when it is let out. The sound appears to come from the transmission area, not from the pedal itself. ONLY happens when the car is warm. Seems fine when i first drive it in the morning. Any ideas? It is a 2005 1.8t gti with 83,xxx miles.
Not so much of a squeek, but a very distinct clicking sound. When i fully depress the clutch it clicks maybe 8 times? Definitely coming from the transmission area, and the car does not have to be moving for the sound to happen. I can keep it in neutral, or in any other gear and it will make the sound It is less noticible when the car is moving
edit*---yes i can feel it in the pedal
I currently have a similar problem..a couple people told me it could be possible flywheel chatter..I also have an 05 gti 1.8t and mine has exactly 90k
my car is at a friends cuz he's fixing a couple other things and should be able to test it out when I get to his house today after work.
Does the engine shake at all if the hood is popped and the cluth is pushed in?..
I'll update once I see if it goes away with some of the other fixings he did. GL
-Ive thought about the slave or master cylinders. However, the sound comes from the transmission area, not near the pedal...possibly the slave cylinder then?
-I dont believe the engine shakes with the clutch pushed in, but im at work right now so i cant check. I also cant imagine it is flywheel chatter because the sound is directly correlated to pushing the clutch in and out. The slower I push the clutch in, the slower it clicks. Same amount of clicks no matter how fast I push the clutch in though.
