      We are migrating! IMPORTANT - Please read   08/07/2017

      Over the past couple of years we've seen an influx of productivity and engagement across our social networking platforms. So much so, that the social realm as you may know, is overtaking the likes of websites and forums. We have been number crunching and feel it is best that we go with the flow and embrace the social media world.
      We have decided to transfer the club over to our already hugely popular Facebook Page and Facebook Group. With over 14k members on our Facebook group alone there is even more engagement with other members from across the world. If you haven't already, now is the time to give our Page a Like and join the Group for discussions.
      The website will soon become a redirect to the Facebook Page and Group. If you have anything of importance posted on the forum, now would be a great time to grab it and post it on our group.

      A further message will be sent before the switch.

  1. Hi guys, About 2 months ago my car started chirping at idle, noise went away when clutch pedal pushed. Took it to a garage and they said the clutch release bearing was bad. I got the clutch replaced as it was worn down anyways with the bearings etc.All was fine after for a week. Then I start hearing an awful rattling noise from my car at idle. Like the chirping noise it went away when the clutch pedal was pushed. However it would be considerably louder when it was hot or the engine had been running for some time. Took it back to the garage and they said it was the release bearing again and that they would install a new clutch kit again under warranty. As I was away for a 2 weeks I had to wait until now to get it replaced. Garage rung me up today saying the car is still making the noise with the new clutch and that they would need to look at it again. I've started having a look online for what this noise could be and I've found some articles saying it could be the input shaft bearing or worse the whole gearbox. Does anyone have experience on this problem and know what it is? Any help would be appreciated.
