Hi

Blueprint, supposed to be o.e quality, will be ringing the motor factor today to complain and inform ill be returning the part if they agree to refund, unsure of my chances there!

Thinking of ordering an exidy clutch next and trying one more time.

Assuming it is the clutch that's an issue

So, have you taken the gearbox off and determined it is the clutch that’s causing the problem.  If you have not done that, and you ring the motor factor and complain, and later find it was not the clutch you going to feel pretty silly. Why not wait till the clutch has been inspected.

if you have to buy another clutch what’s wrong in the LUK, you mentioned that in an earlier post.

That’s right , you have to find first what is wrong and what had caused the issue. Blueprint are best make for aftermarket for Japanese cars, very often problems solvers. If poor workmanship had cause

plus a new clutch makes it good for many years to come

2018 or 2008

2008 - I made a typo.

 

My 2008 C1 was one of the last to be built with the 180mm clutch, which failed suddenly on my way to work in 2011 with just over 30,000 miles on the clock.

Not yet catlover, I must admit, but most people seem to think its that, ill be dropping it 1st and inspecting then complaining.

All just so stressful for now

thats where using a garage that supplies the parts come outs best...it would all be their problem and fixed for free (if theyre honest )

Tbh most places will still charge the labour to replace an item, 8/10 times they will try to get out of it, maybe I'm just jaded

You're right too.

Diy or garage...both have their advantages and disadvantages!

It cost me 100 for the gearbox, 130 labour paying my neighbour mechanic and my help, and say 36.00 worth of gear Oil, so in a way, its half a garage bill so I could go it again! Only no warranty

Driving the car now to work it changes gear so smoothly and the power so clean, I think its definitely drivable hopefully without causing any further damage  its just that sound coming from the bottom of dry and slight knocking. I could probably trade it in and the salesman wouldn't pick up on it! Not that I want to!

Sam, you got to get that gearbox out of the car to check what’s gone on. IF it a faulty clutch that’s causing the problem, you need to be in contact with the supplier of it (that goes with any part), I not used any Blueprint stuff but others say it’s ok. Get to the bottom of the problem first.

If poor workmanship had caused the issue then it’s not the spare part but if it’s the spare part you may make a claim even directly with them, they are Surrey based company. 👍🇬🇧

In the meantime I've orderd an exedy 3pc clutch just as a standby to be returned if not the issue. According to the vid you guys posted it sounds highly likely a bust clutch.

Otherwise its car off road and bearings to be orderd to rebuild gearbox

Can we all come and watch

I'd actually like that, atleast I'd have a group of experienced people watching over us and helping me identify the culprit parts, the more opinions the merrier!

Hmm, sounds revs related to me

Is it audible reving  in neutral ?

Thinking waterpump bearings

But, just MHO, many more opinions availabe

Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-9BFG0E3mA

It changes with rpm, Definitely gear box end but goes with the clutch depressed, pls see the previous page in this thread (videos)

Not a peep in neutral. Only in gear...even then mostly in 3rd and 4th and 5th.

Coming from right hand lower end!

Hi, if only happens in gear and on 3-4-5 means something related to the torque transmission, higher gears transfer higher torque at lower rpm. Basically the clutch is extra loaded on those gears and less loaded on first and second. , which also points towards a fault with your clutch pack. Blueprint usually are the best alternative to the oem parts, but even so once in a while a manufacturer defective parts are not excluded of happening. , even new Toyotas goes wrong sometimes. Let’s be positive and wait to take it off the car and see what is all about. At least it’s a small car and easy to work on, imagine that job on a Audi A6🤭😶👍
