147 gear-clunking-sound when downshifting/breaking

Hey there,

I am new here.

Just recently bought a 147 2003 model..about 113k kms now. I've recently started noticing a clunking sound when I break/downshift from 2 nd to 1st gear.

Also, I also noticed a rattling sound when I am driving esp when the rev is in the 2-3500 rpm region.

Any comments?

Im assuming that your car is a Selespeed.

The clunking sound when downshifting from 2nd to 1st gear is normal. mine does that too!

Not too sure about the rattling sound...

Is the rattle only when cold.

Mine rattles for the first few minutes but then stops. I haven't had it diagnosed but i think its possibly the heat shield.

The clunking is indeed normal. Sillyspeeds are not very quiet.
