Clutch/gearbox Again ?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've got an IS200 sport, on a 2001 Y plate. It's done 38500 miles.

Now when I let the clutch out I get a distinctive whirring sound. When I press it down it disappears. The car had that annoying judder when you first pull away, but late last year my local dealer replaced the clutch/flywheel/ and bearing under warrenty. The judder has gone, but the sound has slowly appeared over the last few months. It's getting on my nerves.

Anybody had this before ? Can anyone shed some light on it for me ? :blink:

As far as i remember from my colledge mechanic days lol the clutch release bearing is only spun when the clutch pedel is pressed.And the gearbox input shaft is spun when the pedel is let out.
