Hi all,<br>About a year ago, I had replaced my clutch due to the oh-so-awesome slave cylinder failure. A spec clutch replaced to OEM one. At the time, I also did my IPD tune, DP, and misc hotrodding while I had the car apart.<p>My collar gear/spline gears looked a bit pitted and rusty but serviceable, so I cleaned both parts up as well as I could and reassembled using the special (read $$$) Volvo grease. (crossed fingers)<p>Now, over the last month, I have been noticing a slight grinding/crunchy/vibration sensation in the clutch pedal when first taking off in first or reverse. Like when slack is taken up in the drivetrain. Occasionally if I have the window down, I can also hear a slight metallic "crunchy" sound.<p>I am fairly sure that this is not caused by the clutch and/or throwout bearing because 1) it is still really new, and 2)it was properly installed, and 3) There is not a hint of this noise/vibration when shifting between 2-3-4, etc, like any other time the clutch is used.<p>So my question is for those who have had the collar gear fail. Is this noise/symptom sound like what happens before it goes? or could it be something else? I am sure also that the increased HP/torque of my tune with spirited driving may be the straw that broke the collar gears back.<p>Thanks in advance for any input.

Re: Could this be my collar gear going? (0460RSWEDE)

Sounds more like axle ping (it does not ping). <p>Are you familliar with that? If not search. If yes, and you have taken care of it, sorry for trying to find the cheap solution. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

I have not taken care of the ping yet. I sure hope that is what it is. I guess I will pick up the XC90 bolts and try that first. <br>So the ping is more like a crunch?

What I have is a 2-3 second long sustained grumbly crunchy metallic noise on the uptake of the clutch pedal. Don't you love the sound description? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (0460RSWEDE)

Sounds like a clutch "spring" issue to me.
