Clutch Problem

Just had the clutch replaced in my BA XTV8 as it had a bad scraping sound when the clutch is being released.
Didn't fix the problem at all, the sound it not there when the clutch pedal is fully depressed but comes on just as the car starts to move then stops when the pedal is fully released.
is it.
I need information please as the ford dealer is just useless.

I still miss my EX
but my aim is getting better

Re: Clutch Problem

This noise is maybe normal depending on what material the clutch plate is made of ??? What does your knowledgable service manager say ???

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: Clutch Problem

Sounds like possibly a bad release bearing, but if the clutch was replaced then the release bearing should have been too, unless you're using a very dogdy mechanic...

IS the clutch a single or twin plate? One of the clutches could be facing the wrong way and scrapping on the flywheel, then stops when enough pressure is on it.
