Q: Clutch is chattering

asked by on

My clutch is chattering.

A chattering clutch may be caused by a warped clutch pressure plate or flywheel. On some cars these warp due to the clutch release system or clutch pedal mechanism binding and not releasing smoothly. I would recommend having the complete system checked for any binding before removing the clutch to see the clutch and pressure plate inside.
