hello to all first post here. recently swapped my transmission and put a new clutch, lightweight flywheel, throw out bearing and release bearing. i’m hearing a rattle from the transmission but unsure of what it is. used a different release bearing from the one that was in the clutch kit that i bought but not if it’s that that could be causing the noise. when engaging clutch noise goes away and returns when clutch is disengaged.E46 M3 tranny noise . any input would be appreciated.
It's normal if you are using a lightweight flywheel.
My car does the same.
I'm not aware of any solutions apart from raising the idle rpm.
Maybe some different oil ? But not sure how this could help...
the cheap clutch/flywheel kits are always out of balance and they make ALOT of noise. spend the extra $100 and get them balanced by a machine shop. they will balance the pressure plate and flywheel together. But otherwise yes normal
