Customer Question
Hello :) the clutch...

Hello :) the clutch in my rio ls doesn't take much pressure off the pedal to engage into drive and when at the point where drive engages it makes a half loud click noise ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?

A little bit. Pedal must be hard in to change in lower gears?

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Rio?

04

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Rio yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Brakes front and rear so far.Have only purchased car.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thanks.

Hi I'm Kevin it sounds very much as though your clutch pressure plate is failing and the clutch will need to be replaced to cure

I'm going to check the clutch adjustment cable N see if it can be improved at all as a means of getting by till clutch kit gets here. Any idea on where the clicking noise may be coming from on release of clutch pedal ? It's quite loud ?

This is possibly part of the same issue but it could also be a cv noise
