    Default Weird Clicking / Rattling

    Alright guys

    I have noticed this loud sharp click sometimes when pulling off as normal, depending on how hard i pull off, the louder the click. This has been noticed since day one on the car. I thought it was a one off, but, Thorney also advised this is not normal when they test drove the car after the map had been applied.

    Any ideas what it could be? I can hear it sometimes when driving as normal, and sometimes when going over bumps.

    I thought it was the clutch or gearbox, as it's present only when pulling off, or driving aggressive at times, its more of a rattle than a click when in motion, but its the same type of sound.

    The car actually drives perfect, can't fault anything, everything still feels solid and tight.

    Cheers

    Does sound like a transmission problem. I know the 2.0 Turbo flywheel is not fantastic and can fail on cars that have not even been mapped.

    Cheers, ill get it booked in soon, funny though, it seems to have almost gone since i did my oil and oil filter change, I try to listen out for it, but can't replicate it, and i don't want to break something on purpose. Ill keep an eye on it, and get Thorney to check it next time im down there.

    Thanks for the feedback.
