View Full Version : disturbing noise

After long drives, or aggessive driving im getting a loud clicking noise when I push in the clutch. If I sit and let the car cool down, its fine again. Any ideas what could be causing this?

My guess would be clutch throwout bearing or some kind of worn/damaged clutch pressure plate. Another possibility is the crank having front/back freeplay caused by worn thrust bearings...but this doesn't seem super likely to me. Never heard of that on an Audi yet. Was an issue on some '99 Miatas and 2nd gen Mitsu Eclipses.

Yeah, that's the only thing I could come up with......Its weird though because Its a new clutch/pressure plate, throw out bearing, and long block (had a timing belt problem) I guess its back to the stealership.....

Hard to diagnose on the Internet.

Yeah, I was just looking to see if anyone had had the same problem...
