Heavy Creaking Clutch


Recommended Posts

It's finally happened. 130,000 miles and the clutch gave out so I couldn't get the car into gear. Back to driving by matching the revs and the road speed. Only able to start it up in gear - bit of a pain at junctions. Anyway, new clutch and DMF installed by Toyota agent - loads of money. Now, the heavy clutch pedal has gone, the creaking from the point where the rod goes through the bulkhead has gone. Strangely there was no clutch slip and I never imagined that a symptom of a failing clutch was a heavy pedal action. I still have the original problem of the lack of pep off the line but hey, one problem at a time. Will take a bit of time to examine the DMF as I asked to keep it. Quite a lot of rotation between the parts. Has to be said that the car is a whole lot quieter at idle and has less vibration overall.
