    Default dragging noise from front of car

    Hi,

    before i start trying to explain the problem i want to say i know nothing about car mechanics so it won't be overly technical

    When i went out in my ITR earlier i heard a horrid noise that sounded like something being dragged underneath the car but i pulled over and had a look and there's nothing hanging down

    It's mainly when i start going, low revv/slow acceleration. it also does it when i change gears

    i just need some ideas so i don't sound like a complete idiot when i take it to a mechanics.

    Thanks in advance

    Could be your clutch slipping?

    would it still be doing it when accelerating and not touching the clutch though?

    Yeah if it's on the way out then it won't have the holding force so will slip under any sort of power but worth getting it confirmed mate before paying out for a new clutch!

    Simple way to check if its the clutch is to put it in forth gear and try to pull away, if it makes funny noises then its probably the clutch. Testing this way wont help though, it will reduce whatever life is left in the clutch.
