Hello and Happy new year to all,
Has anyone come across this in their Alfa quests? number 12 in the attached picture.
reason is, since i had a clutch replacement in mid 2011 there has been a rattling noise and i'm suspecting this. The noise is only heard when pulling off from a standstill with the windows down or changing gear at low RPM, if i sit there on the drive and revv it then its not heard.
Here's the other post i did which i investigated into the noise: http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...ise-video.html
As i recall, the noise was first heard when i received the car back from the garage after the clutch/ slave cylinder was replaced.
i haven't got to the root of the noise as its very hard to pinpoint, but this thin metal plate seems to be a suspect, maybe one of the mechanics didn't fit all the bolts and its slightly loose inside?
if it is this then i have an arsenal of air tools to get the bell housing off.
thank you for reading. Happy new year Alfistis!
