    Default knocking noise on startup

    Hi everyone

    i recently had my clutch and flywheel changed under warrenty on my 06 1.8 (18xer engine) and now when i start the car there is a horrible knocking noise, it sounds like the starter motor catching the ring gear it only happens for the first few seconds of start up and is worse when cold im worried incase its the cambelt tensioner.

    has anyone heard of this before or had the same problem please help!

    Simon

    I've had a quick nose but wasn't able to see, thing is there's a grinding noise from the same location when turning with full lock, only happens on first start up though :-(
