Hi anton I hope you are well . Any vibration ?

No not really. The only thing is that the steering is a bit hard but not excessively and on uneven roads the van is quite bouncy. The car has 115000 miles

Ok so the fact the noise is when you letting off the clutch could point to a clutch or flywheel that is starting to fail . I would start by getting the engine mountings checked and driveshafts for any wear . After this if they check out it would be a case of pulling the transmission to take a look at the clutch and flywheel

Yeah I thought about the clutch/flywheel too but one day I was driving up a wet slope (first gear) and the wheel were spinning with no girp. Once the tyres got the grip I heard the same clunking noise i hear when I release the clutch. In this case clutch and flywheel have nothing to do seen that they were already engaged.P.s if I release the clutch very slowly I can avoid the noise

It will have a dual mass flywheel so it’s likely that this is worn and it’s the springs inside causing the noise

From what I remember a broken spring in the dual mass flywheel is an ongoing noise. It makes a continuous noise. My car makes a single noise ( knocking noise and shaking of the car ) only on the release of the clutch ( 2nd 3rd gear ) 4th 5th and 6th nothing. Normal driving there is no noise. Downshifting also no noise.

No always and in fact most fail in the way at the beginning that there is only noise when changing up gears and taking up the play on clutch

I see. Last question and thankyou very much for your advice. How much woul that cost to change flyweel+ clutch ( is single mass flywheel an option here? ) Is there any chance that could be an engine/gearbox mount or the driveshaft? There is also a vibration/rattle that i notice when I press the clutch pedal ( halfway down ). For.the rest there is no problem or difficulty in changin gears
Automotive Expert
Ok average cost for clutch and flywheel is around £1200 . I wouldn’t recommend fitting a solid flywheel they cause more issues than they solve
