is this common?

My car is making a noise it shouldn't be, it's the 1.7 cdti 2011, when just ticking over its noisey like doesn't really sound like a normal diesel, press the clutch and it sounds fine (as it should in my opinion) lift the clutch and it's noisey again, my mate says input shaft bearings maybe or thrust bearing, it's still reasonably low mileage

that is something you are going to need a professional opinion on
if your car is under warranty take it back to get checked out

I've had the car 2 weeks now, bought it from a garage not a main dealer mind, should they cover this under the 3 month warranty that all used car should atleast get when sold from a garage

get an independent view from any garage no one will charge you for a diagnosis
then when you go back you will know what if anything is wrong

spoke to a mechanic yesterday and he said sounds like flywheel, also said quite common on the vauxhall diesels like the astra h 1.9, to have the problem going ask my local vauxhall dealer about it tomorrow i think

very good idea but get a local garage to carry out the work if it is the problem
as the dealers will charge the earth to do the simplest job

went to the vauxhall dealer today and the mechanic had go of the clutch, and says it'll be the thrust bearing, which in turn damages the flywheel, so both need replacing,

also said it's a known common fault but not covered by warranty and no recalls at all for my car according to service manager

At least you know what it is (or what VX say it is).

Hopefully the garage will be nice and put it right free of charge or meet you 50/50 with the costs.

well been to garage today, looks like they are going to sort it, the mechanic says this is very common, not just in the 1.7's but also the 2 litre diesels, more so the 6 speed gearbox, i think the petrols are ok though
