    Squeak when accelerating!

    I noticed yesterday that when on full throttle and changing up a gear aggressively there is a short squeak. It is only when banging down the accelerator and letting off clutch immediately.

    Would it be the clutch slipping?

    Does it mean the clutch is going to need replacing? Or is it simply poor driving technique?

    Thanks

    I think its quite common, i dont know what it is though. My old astra club did it, so did my coupe. I have also heard a mates MK4 doing it. This is when changing gear like you say.

    poor driving technique, could be your alternator belt slipping.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
