Noisy clutch - sometimes
Hi, I'm a new member having only recently acquired my 2003 plate 156 Sportwagon (1.8 T.Spark).
Within a week of having the car 4th gear gave up on it, but with the help of these wonderful forums I have got that sorted by clearing the 'gunk' out of the bottom of the gearbox - woo!
However, I have now come across problem number 2. In 1st and reverse gears the car makes a moaning / wailing sound when starting to move. Having experimented it seems to do it more when stressing the clutch, such as moving uphill or giving it a few too many beans on setting off, but this doesn't seem to be a hard and fast rule.
I've had a search of the forums and haven't relaly been able to dig out anything to help on it, so has anyone any ideas of what the problem may be? or of somewhere that may be able to tell me? Fingers crossed its not going to be an expensive exercise as funds are low at the moment.
Cheers for any help,
