I'd hold off on getting the thrust bearing changed for now. Wait to see if the clutch replacement sorts it first. If it does then that's ok, if it doesn't then you're still under warranty andcan get it done as a further investigation. Getting the thrust bearings changed is a fairly major operation on the engine and could lead to problems further down the line (contamination of bearings, Oil pan leaks etc.)

They sure did.

It all started soon after I picked the car up, it would be real noisy when costing down in low gears from say 35 downwards.

The first time it went in, they replaced the bearings in the box, as they thought it was that.

Then I was having problems getting it into gear, mainly when it was hot, this was because there was a small circlip missing off one of the shafts on production, meaning that when the box was getting hot, the gear and shaft were expanding and moving out of place, which is why it was hit and miss.

Finally, the noise hadnt gone away, you could really hear it when you left it in neutral with the clutch up and revved it to about 3-4k rpm, you could hear the scraping and it went as soon as you dropped the clutch.

I showed this to the service chappie and he agreed straight away...New Clutch.

It's been and had all this done, so fingers crossed all will be OK now :D

HTH

Hi, We had a 2004 T sport with the same problem, the garage replaced the gearbox bearings twice and the clutch release pin twice, in the end we got rid of it!

It is nice to see we were not the only people with this problem.

Now our new corolla with 2500 miles on the clock has deployed the curtain airbag without having a crash! Do you ever feel jinxed

Taking off from a standstill there is a loud rattle from the front of my car, so I've driven a few times over the last few days with the radio and fan off and windows down to find out where this is coming from (feels like a vibration type rattle that's coming from manifold heatshield, clutch pedal/gearbox or somewhere in that region).

Bad thing is, I'm still no wiser to where that sound is coming from, but now I can hear my gearbox/clutch grinding or "chattering" too on letting the foot off the gas and taking off! :(

I thought I was lucky enough to escape this fault on my T Sport! <_<

Time for another appointment with Mr. T! :censor:

Do you exlude misfiring of the engine as you accelerate from low rpm? Does this noise depend on the pressure on gas pedal?

There's no misfire noise or engine noise whatsoever...
