I have an 2004 ford fiesta finess, when I put my clutch fully

Customer Question

I have an 2004 ford fiesta finess, when I put my clutch fully down I can hear what sounds like a wood pecker under the hood. I can hear it inside and outside the car. When I apply the gas to move off there is a slight shudder when I do and now I'm finding there is a little resistance when changing gears. Do you know what this could be before I take it to the garage?

Hi there good morning to you and sorry for the delay I couldn't access your question
Ok your fault lies with the clutch assembly
The faults you have ie clutch judder on pulling away / difficulties going into gear (clutch not clearing ) and the noise will be caused by a clutch issue concern ie: pressure plate issue
To replace the clutch the gearbox needs to be removed which in total takes around 4 hours to plus the parts

Do you know how much that is likely to cost?
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 1 year ago.
Hi there
To replace a clutch on your vehicle you will be looking at around £300
This depends on the labour rate and type of parts fitted
A main ford dealer will be more expensive than a smaller independent garage
I would advise phoning a few smaller garages asking for prices first to give you a better choice /insight to the costs
