GTV 2.0 TS - Whining
I bought a GTV a couple of weeks back from a really nice guy, who had it for sale on here, it's formerly GroovyLee's car I think.
Anyway, drives really nicely, and I am happy, however it has developed a problem.
Idling in neutral, their is the slightest hint of a whine, touch the clutch however and the while is loud, most noticeable as you change gears, up or down, and fairly loud. While driving and not operating the clutch it can be heard too.
Unless someone more knowledgeable (wouldn't be difficult) than me can suggest otherwise, the obvious culprit seems to be the clutch (although as I say, faint but noticeable sound in neutral with foot off clutch).
I see a number of suppliers online supplying clutch kits, so the cost of that is not so much the question, the question is what should I expect to shell out in labour, whatever it is, its not good, that's for sure.
Finally, not sure if it makes any difference to the question, but the actual gear changes are smooth and not problematic in any way at all.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
