    Have i trapped a rattle snake?

    Basically as I start to press in my clutch there is a (best i can describe) a rattle and vibration between changing gears more so inbetween the lower gears.
    Also as im driving along if i touch on the clutch I can hear it also...
    New clutch or release bearing time or something else like a gearbox or gear selector on it way out?

    Cheers

    may aswell if you are paying for labour to fit the bearing

    to be honest though a rattly release bearing is just an annoying noise more than anything

    I was thinking about ignoring it, but this A3 is the first decent car iver ever had so I wanted to keep it perfect!
    Perhaps il just have to learn to ignore it.

    Is the bearing a garage / gearbox out job? Or could I do it with a set of home ramps and a spanner?
