    Default Ralliart Colt gearbox/clutch issue

    Our Ralliart Colt has developed a noise coming from the gearbox/flywheel area. Kinda sounds like a big end bearing (if you've ever heard one before) or like a rattling kind of sound coming from the gearbox/clutch/flywheel area.

    It only happens when the car is cold, and it goes away when you put your foot on the clutch.

    The gearbox has some rollover noise, which is normal, but this a very noticeable rattling sound.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers.

    I have heard this is a fairly common problem, it is clutch bearing noise. Have you got the dealer to check it out?

    Sounds like a thrust bearing to me.

    Haven't had the car back to the dealer yet. I just wanted to get an idea of what's going on before I go and see them. Chances are they'll probably try and say that the gearbox oil I've used is not as per the manual and it's caused the problem. Even though the thrust bearing has zero to do with the gearboxes operation.

    Edit: Thing is, the gearbox has always been kinda noisy. Plenty of rollover noise, which I've come to accept. But this noise is quite loud and rattly and is of some concern. It doesn't seem to make any difference to the actual changing of gears or the way the gearbox operates.

    The Rcolts gearboxes are not the quietest units around, and I know of a few people that have had repaired under warranty...
    Come over to Rcolt and have a chat... Bit of knowledge there...

    my car used to make that noise, turned out to be the clutch plate springs and rubbers were lose, causing it to be rattly. new clutchplate (pressure plate and throwout bearing), and after 80 thou its coming back again, i am guessing so anyway. does it stop if you put it in gear and just let the clutch ride? thats what mine did.

    Not that I've noticed mate.

    I think I'm gonna take it to a mate mechanic and get him to change the throwout bearing and see how we go. I did some reading on Mitsubishi's warranty, and it appears this falls under "general wear and tear item".

    My car was doing a similar thing (Legnum)

    Rattly sound when in idle/neutral, if i put my foot on clutch stopped.. turnair aircon on (changed engine load) stopped.

    after replacing my clutch it went away. as others have suggested i highly suspect it was the thrust bearing hence putting load on it with the clutch pedal stopped the noise.. the aircon thing i imagine was just changing resonant frequencies.
