Can anyone shine some light on this one?Today when I drove off from work I had a noise that I can only describe as the slight clicking /ratchet noise you get when a CV joint has gone .Initially this is exactly what I supposed it to be ,however when I pressed the clutch to change into 2nd the noise disappeared.I can only notice it when in 1st gear and 2nd gear ,although this may be due to increased speed/engine noise drowning it out .It seems to increase with the speed of the car ie. get faster not louder.
The car is a 95 v6.
p.s in order to hear it , as it is not that loud I have to turn climate /radio off but can definately hear something rubbing/clicking
thanks in advance for help
Had a good test drive over the weekend ,and I can hear the clicking in 1st 2nd 3rd 4th gears, but only when the clutch is engaged ,sounds ok when I depress the pedal.Does this point to the release bearing etc ? And approx how much would a clutch job cost?( not that I'm about to have it done, just to cure a noise!! Just as well i've got a 12 stack changer in the boot, plenty of choice to DROWN out the clicks).
