?ltadmin said:as yet not fully explained, but many G's have had clutch problems in under 5000 miles. So far quite a few new owners have been "GoodWilled" new clutches
If the engine is turning over OK, I would be surprised if the flywheel is the issue.chris said:My G-car is still sleeping at the garage. The clutch won't be available within 3 weeks. It has around 4,000km milage. I read another forum from England. There is a G-car only has 450mile and the clucth is finished. :rolling:
BTW, is there anything doing with flywheel if I can't shift or engaing gear? Is it clutch wear problem only.
mhh - how did you resolve the clicking sound in the transmission tunnel without help? Please tell! It only occurs when the climate control is on but I thought that a fix would be quite hard.mhh said:FWIW, on my car:-
1. No problem with idle
2. Had it, but resolved without help
For issue #2, I know that at least the 06's have a known issue w/ the bushings (i think it's the bushings) in the front. My dealer replaced this under warranty right after buying the car. It sounded like a metal on metal clicking. You would notice it when raising and lowering the car, and also when going over bumps occasionally.1) My Spyder also has a clicking noise coming thru handbrake area
2) Also a clicking noise thru dash when using the height control and when going over a speedbump slowly.
Can anybody suggest a fix
Can't virtually any machine shop make a throwout bearing for $100?I live in Florida and my local service center in Orlando says it would be $6500 and rarely if the throw out bearing is required it would be $8000. He said the throw out bearing cost $1500. I've read on here the cluct itself goes for $4200. You may want to purchase a Kevalar or a Carbon fiber for around $2500.
