Clutch bearing rattle

Recommended Posts

After switching from a 350 to a 370 I was hoping the horrible rattling clutch would be in the past, but the 370 I got does the same. Definitely sounds like the same thrust bearing issue that dogged the 350z.

 

Will upgrading to an aftermarket clutch solve it long term? Excedy are doing the 18MY clutches, I guess that'd fix it as the kit would have a new bearing included, and presumably a better design?

If it is the release bearing that is noisy then a new one will fix your issue, however, if it is the gearbox idler gear/first motion shaft bearing that is noisy, then it will not.

can I also add to this, when I have my clutch down its quieter than when I release. very noticeable in idle.. could this also be a bearing? simple fix?

The clutch release bearing is not turning when the clutch pedal is up.

It only starts to spin when you press the clutch pedal and the release bearing comes into contact with the clutch cover diaphragm.
