    Clicking clutch pedal

    Hi all, my car has decided to annoy me with another noise! The pedal is making a really loud clicking noise! Does anyone have any ideas to solve it? I only had a new one fitted a couple of months ago. Would it be fair enough to take it back to the garage to have a look, or is the pedal nothing to do with the parts disturbed when changing a clutch? The noise is exactly the same as this video here: YouTube

    Stick your head in the footwell and push the pedal down with your hand, I think the noise you refer to may just be the back of the clutch panel catching on the carpet when pressed down and it flicks it when you let it out. Mine did this when I had a steering shaft joint replaced. The back of the pedal has a little piece of plastic which catches the edge of the carpet.

    Worth a look before taking it back

    Re: Clicking clutch pedal

    Thanks for the reply. It's definitely not the carpet from what I can see. Would I have grounds for taking it back then? Or is the actual clutch pedal not touched when changing the clutch and it's just a coincidence and nothing to do with their work?
