    Vauxhall Garage response

    I emailed vauxhall in edinburgh regarding my clutch pedal vibrations i get, they replied with this...

    Thank you for your enquiry & apologys for the delay in reply. I have tried to ellicit some ideas as to solving your problem, however, there are really quite a few options which could only be diagnosed with a test drive. I t may be an engine problem but could just as easily be transmission or engine mounting issues. Perhaps you could find time to call in & allow us to check it.

    Anyone have any comments on this? thanks.

    re: Vauxhall Garage response

    Sounds to me like they haven't got a clue without looking at the car.

    Which does kinda make sense.

    - 2003 BMW 325ti M Sport - Silver, 18" CSL wheels in matt anthracite, Eibachs, Full red leather

    Agreed, book it in and bring a copy of the email to the dealer so that they can see that Vauxhall is interested in the resulst of their findings (might make them look a bit harder than normal?)

    Hi,

    Took the car in on Sat - mechanic test drove it...

    Verdict is: Unsure where it is comming from, possibly Clutch Release Bearing.

    However, one bloke siid you can feel misfires through the pedals, possible fault with one of the coils for the sparkies.

    I have to go back on Tuesday get a courtesy car and another mechanic is going a test drive to see what he thinks causing it.

    Incase you dont know here are the symptoms

    Vibration felt through clutch pedal when foot pushes down slightly on it e,g when going to change gear etc.

    No Vibration felt if you are NOT accelerating

    Vibration gets faster feeling higher up revs.


    IF you want to comment on this and vauxys thoughts please do,i can use it on Tuesday if it may help them.

    Thanks

    My '00 Mk4 has started doing something similar to this recently whereby if you gently "ride" clutch whilts moving you can feel a vibration and it's covered just under 70,000 miles so i'm really interested in the outcome of this as i was thinking it's about time to add a new clutch to it... maybe not though.

    Please keep us posted!

    An extremely gratefull Mick
