Vibrating clutch

766 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  OddyseusDSM
My mate's a BMW driver (boo hiss..... :) ). He drove my car recently and took the pee out of the fact that the cluch pedal vibrates with the movement of the engine. (He can't talk his beemer won't even drive :D ) Is there a problem with my car or is it the same with all 9-5's?

Cheers

(N.B. I've had it chipped if that makes any difference)

Lets get this right, your BMW owning mate is ribbing you cos the clutch peddle vibrates a little and his sausage mobile won't run at all? Boy is he clutching at straws or what? :cheesy: I don't own a manual, but i have had pedals on other vehicles that vibrate slightly at idle. So long as the clutch bites properly on take up/down shifting i wouldn't worry at all, only worry if it vibrates on every shift or is sinking to the floor, that would indicate contaminated clutch plates, or master/slave cylinder problems. What condition is your brake/clutch fluid in? (they share the same reservoir in the engine bay) If it looks a light honey colour and is to the MAX fill height then all is good.:cool:

ABS shouldn't be engaging over bumps, the only time you should notice it is when you hit the brakes HARD, you should then get a pulsing/pushing back sensation through the brake pedal. :confused:
