    Default Bag of Spanners

    Evening

    Over the last couple of days my car is sounding more and more like a bag of spanners

    It sounds worse when the clutch is partly depressed

    07 reg 1.9CDTI (150) with 94k on the clock

    What is the sound that its making? Knock , rattle or just downright banging?? is the noise present when driving or at idle? is your gear selection ok or have you got a vibration through clutch pedal when operated?
