    I have a 55 plate 1.9tdi 105 BHP diesel estate.
    When Idling there is a clatter from the drivers side of the engine, once on the move it goes.
    I have noticed that if I depress the clutch slightly the clatter disappears but the clatter is definitely coming from the drivers side anyone any ideas
    Its not there all the time though.
    Its defo not the clutch release bearing I know that sound all to well from my old Kia carens that I managed to mug a Renault gararge to take it off my hands

    There are a few possibilities. Clutch release bearing even though you donít think so but that would come from the other end as would a failing DMF so I would suspect the belt dives at the front or the alternator pulley BUT that doesnít explain why it goes when putting your foot on the clutch. When you depress the clutch, the crank is pushed over to the right hand side of the engine buy a tiny amount but this can force the pulleys away enough to silence a slight interference. Has the cam belt been done recently? I have seen new crank pulley outer bolts fitted which are fractionally too long and these can hit the seal holder.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    The belt has yet to be changed it will be in the next 5K as its coming up to 70K
    I hope its not the flywheel as I have heard they cost unless one can be sourced from somewhere else How much is one as a mater of interest??

    Thanks for the info.

    I wont be going to the dealer as it out of warranty but I use a small gararge where the mechanic looks after racing saloons, and he is bloody good and quick at what he does.
    He also looks after most of the skoda taxis

    Just update you all, it was the DMF that was away,
    tried to get one cheap but gave up and called the dealer. Chathams in Edinburgh
    He then gave me some good news, he could fit the full old type system, flywheel and clutch for £230 all in, so had it done 4 months ago.they even did an oil change free of charge
    So far no problems and the fuel consumption is better, now getting 500 miles before the fuel light comes on compared to around 400.
    I also have had the belts done and changed the water pump to the metal one £200 all in at a Seat dealers

    Should have taken it to a Skoda dealer. There is a re-call on DMF units on Octavias and all VW's. They do exactly what you have had done. For free.
