I have a Sirion 1.0 2008 and it has been a great little car. I've noticed, that if I put the clutch down, there is quite a rattling noise from the region of the transmission tunnel. As soon as I release the clutch, the noise goes away. I've also noticed, that the clutch travel seems rather high and it can be a bit 'notchy' getting into first and second gear.
Is it likely that the clutch release bearing needs replacing I'm wondering it has been affected by water, as there has been some pretty flooded roads around here. If the bearing does need replacing, presumably, the clutch should be replaced at the same time.
Can anyone give me a ballpark figure what this might all cost /
thank you for any guidance/suggestions.
