Just had a clutch replaced, and the car makes a "crunchy" noise during deceleration while in gear. Any ideas?

Asked by mlharrity Dec 01, 2013 at 11:26 AM about the 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Brand new clutch installed Friday. Makes a very audible crunch/grinding noise during
deceleration, and sometimes during acceleration right after shifting gears. Driving at
steady RPM with foot on the gas sounds fine

1 Answer


Does the crunching/grinding occur while in neutral or in gear when decelerating, and does it occur when the clutch is pushed in, or let out?
