Okay folks,

I've got footage of this ******** loud knocking bang. What the **** is causing it!?!?

It goes away when clutch pedal is pressed and goes when the pedal is slightly pressed (doesn't need full press for it to disappear)

I've had clutch kit fitted and new gearbox mainly due to the dreaded 6th gear bearing failure. Noise still exists.

After clutch is pressed and released the noise appears to go or get quieter (sound obviously close to end of video)

Pleeeeaasee help me!!!!

And go kick the mechanic in the nuts. No garage should have done that work without doing the DMF

Well as for kicking the mechanic in the nuts. That's not possible as he died a week ago.

No its a 2L Turbo SRI. I thought it was the thrust bearing so got the kit without the dmf.

I get a kinda vibration through clutch pedal just now.
I can get the job done for £380. £230ish for wheel and £150 for fitting.

Well I'm 1 ****** off cookie! (Excuse the language)
The clutch plate is ******! Parts have broken off and got stuck. So a further clutch needed on top of the flywheel!!!!

Bad news. It's the unfortunate result of the garage not having changed them all at once. They never repaired the source of the problem. I'm afraid to say that they've wasted a lot of your money.
