Clunking Noice From Clutch(I Think)
Posted 10 September 2016 - 02:25 PM
I have just joined after purchasing my first focus Mk3
It's a 12 plate with 46000 miles
I've had it a couple of weeks and found my first problem with it
at start up from cold i hear a clunking noice whilst idling, also
the revs dip really low whilst the clunking noise is present.
When i press the clutch pedal down the noise dissapears
and whilst driving the noise is present but again goes away
when pressing clutch to change gears.
it's not there every time i use the car, and seems to go away after
driving a few miles.
I know nothing about cars TBH and don't want ripped of going to
a garage. I would rather go with some kind of idea what it may be
Is there a way i can upload a recording of the sound i took on my phone
Any help appreciated

I just bought recently from Trade seller, it has 60day warranty. I fully intend returning with it to get checked out, but wanted to go with some information first. Just in case they try and fob me off.
Any advice on what to say to them welcome

So the mechanic had a listen to it today at the dealership and confirmed it was most probably the flywheel.
it's going back in on monday to get sorted under warranty
