    Default Is something bad about to happen?

    I've noticed over the last few days a strange vibrating notion coming from somewhere. I was in an underground car park with the window down when i first noticed it. It was a slight rattle coming from somewhere. The vibration isn't coming through the steering wheel but it appears to be more obvious on the pedals. I have also occasionally heard a clank when releasing the clutch pedal in neutral.

    Is it the dreaded DMF on the way out? There doesn't appear to be any slip on the clutch but i had a problem in the snow where the pedal got stuck half-way down (maybe the spring)

    On looking at your profile what engine?

    Sounds like it may be the through out bearing. I'm presuming you don't have a 1.9 CDTI bearing in mind.

    Sorry, if you have a DMF= manual geabox, haven't had one of them in years. Had a look as a friend had a similar probleeem (vibration) eventually traced it to mobile phone in back pocket - odd place to keep a phone. Hope you get it sorted.
