12/16/13 UPDATE & SOLUTION - THE CLUTCH PEDAL NEEDED TO BE ADJUSTED! (Thank you Rod Knox!) [But on a separate issue, I’ve got grinding/scraping in first, second, and third, which got better with the new clutch and bearing install, but still quite bad in first and second.]
So before this new clutch install, the car was making this grinding/scraping noise driving in first, second, and third. Sometimes it wouldn’t grind/scrape in first and would be smooth and quiet. I had no problems driving like this hundreds of miles. Any ideas what this might have been?
I installed a new clutch. On a guess, or a hunch, or basically just throwing parts at it, lol, trying to fix that grinding/scraping noise.
Now with the new clutch installed, it makes a terrible noise with my foot off of the clutch in neutral. I can’t get into any gears; it’ll just grind gears.
Here is a video of the noise. Again the noise only occurs with my foot off of the clutch pedal. Quiet with my foot on the clutch. I can’t get into any gears. http://s1349.photobucket.com/user/sole51/media/CAM022751_zpsc408b96b.mp4.html
