My apologies at repeating myself from other threads, and for the long windedness of this post.
I have a "56"1.9cdti SRI estate
At 23k Flywheel and clutch replaced (due to rattle on cold start)
At 39ishK Flywheel and clutch replaced (due to intermmitent screech when letting clutch pedal up)
At 55k complained to dealer about rattle when starting from cold, booked in for investigation along with 60k service and cambelt and repairs to drivers seat, left at dealers on Monday eve, and attended Tues a.m for cold start.
I believed, and still do that rattle is from flywheel.
However, after consulting VX the dealer was given authorisation to remove g/box and inspect clutch and flyheel, upon inspection of these 2 items no fault was found, so VX authorised a new g/box.
This was fitted and I was phoned last eve (Fri) at about 5pm to say car was ready for collection.
I didnt arrive to collect the car until just before 6pm (due to the collect/deliver drivers being v.busy), it appeared that all the workshop/service ppl had gone home bar the one who I paid.
I went out to the car got in and started it............and thought I heard .............................yup that ole cold start rattle............couldn't be sure, but after the car had sat on the drive for more than an hour SWMBO got in and said as I started it "That noise is still there"
And it is, sao my first port of call will be the dealer, and then if necessary, VX Customer services.
Any other advice would be much appreciated guys .
