    Clutch & or Flywheel?

    Okay so I just got my 2000 Subaru Impreza RS 2.5 yesterday from a friend and he said the clutch should need to be replaced in a few thousand miles.

    Well today it started making a horrible grinding noise right as I release the clutch and give it gas(heard it can be the bearing but the labor would cost just as much). Can anyone give me some links to a flywheel and clutch or flywheel clutch combo kit that is has a very decent price for its quality?

    Thanks a lot, I just can't find anything or even know what to look for, for that matter.


    Again, thanks ahead of time

    Email some of the club vendors on here to see if they can get you something that'd work.

    Also try my sponsor wrxpro... he can get specialized parts sometimes.

    If neither of those work.. get on nasioc and see what they have to say

    Awesome thanks a lot sinister! My friend said since I'm new with shifting I'm making the clutch surface grindy and wavy instead of smooth due to my lack of inexperience. Driving it better and smoother will fix that to an extent only because the clutch does need to be replaced in 5-10k miles.

    Again, thanks a lot I'll check all of that out <3

    How does your friend know the clutch needs to be replaced in 5-10k miles? There's really no way to know how much is left without pulling the tranny and looking at it.....

    I'm a little suspect of your "friend" here. You can't make a clutch plate "grindy" or "wavy" by driving it wrong. You're just going to wear it out faster...
