I have taken my 2004 2.0 Carens CRDI into the garage to have the wheel bearings done today under warranty from the dealers i bought it from second hand.
They phoned me later in the day to say the clutch is on its way out, the car has done 60,000 miles.
Now the clutch has seemed ok to me, it changes gear ok but from reading the forum some people have said that a clutch change may help stop the vibration that starts at 1500 revs.
Is this vibration a sign that the clutch is on its way out?
The only other symptom is a rattle type of noise at idle that disappears when the clutch pedal is pushed down, are these symptoms connected in any way?

Thanks

From my memory of old morris minors, your symptons describe a worn clutch thrust bearing. The rattle always disappeared on depressing the clutch.in those days tho' you could just replace the bearing, with modern technology I guess it's replace the lot!

Could be a Dual Mass Flywheel that is causing the problem. Vibes can be felt in the clutch pedal and a juddering when lifting the clutch up on take off.

Thanks Quiltman, does this mean a new clutch then if this is the case?

@ davy: Does the Mk2 have a dmf? I thought not?
IMHO this is classic symptoms of thrust bearing failure, exactly as I had on 2 of my Mk2's. Easiest way round it is to change the clutch completely as you have to drop the box to get at it, last 1 I had done by a local clutch specialist was appx £300.

Do you have a "Mr Clutch" or similar near you? If so pop in & ask them to do a road test for you.

Had the clutch done and is is like a different car, so much quieter at lower revs and at idle, the gearstick feels much more solid now as well.
Thanks Supercabby :)

Thanks to Quiltman and davy for the replies as well as Supercabby, was in a rush when replying.

Just hope the gearbox is ok now, although it does seem like it will fail within the next 20,000 miles or so if others experience is anything to go by.

I wish i had found this site before buying instead of going by Parkers guide, they still state no gearbox problems with the model.
