    Clutch Noise/Bad Rattle

    My 2012 Fiat 500 Sport (73,000 miles) started making a heck of a racket the other day out of the blue. The night before it fell out of 5th while I was driving down the interstate, but I thought nothing of it. The next morning, I went to start the car only to have it make a crazy racket when I started it up.

    I found that it seems to be related to the clutch (somehow) because the noise goes away when the clutch is depressed. Shifting into gears is tricky (doesn't seem like the clutch is doing much). The noise is still present when the car is in gear and in motion without the clutch depressed.

    I took a video of the noise, but cannot post it do to being a new poster. I have no Fiat studio within 250 miles of me anymore after my local one closed up shop. Hoping to do a bit of diagnosis before I have to trailer it somewhere to get fixed. Any ideas of what it could be?

    Thanks. Kind of thought it was either that or the pressure plate. I'm working with Fiat of Minneapolis to see if we can get this fixed under the recall. Only downside is that I'd need to trailer the car there.

    When they take it apart, would you make sur to take a picture of the parts? I'm really curious what's going on with your car. There was a post long ago of a cracked throwout bearing, which really shouldn't happen - they wear out, don't normally crack. Did you by the way have the recall done on the pedal assembly?

    Agreed, they shouldn't crack.
