Stealing Noise Help

Hi, I have a 2011 Punto Evo GP with 37,000 miles on, and when the clutch is in neutral or around the biting point I hear squeaking. Also, when going over slight bumps in the road (even tiny bumps) I hear the same squeaking sound. I don't hear it when going at any real speed.

Anyone have nay ideas with what this may be? I have read it could be the clutch.... but don't really fancy getting it replaced!

Sounds like the clutch release bearing. Don't know if it's a known or common issue on the EVO.

Hi,
not sure how the clutch would squeak when driving normally, but over rough ground.

I'd take it into a fast-fit place and get them to give you an itemised quote..,
DO NOT tell them what you think it is.. "act dumb"

then let us know what:
1 they think needs doing,
2, how much for the "fix"
