    Unhappy clutch problem ?!?! idkkkkk

    alright this is the first time owning a subie sti .. so heres the problem

    on the right passenger side when i roll down the passenger window at 2 rpms i can hear a grinding sound (kinda metal sound) only at 2 rpms* if i keep the rev at 2 rpms you can hear it it wont go away... also when i accelerate hard on the pedal say in 3rd or 4th gear at 2rpms to 2.5 it makes a little rattling noise .... ive gotten alot of people telling me diffrent stuff in person someone sed that it could be my stock clutch burning out because of the things i have done to the car running on stock ( 3in downpipe , stage 2 ecu, exhaust , intake, ) or also a engine problem.. i hope not but idk can everyone please give me a few ideas of what this can be before i have to bring it to a mechanic and get screwd over for them just looking at my car..... its a 2010 sti thanks!!!

    Definitely your passenger front window bearings. Keep that window rolled up.

    So it doesn't increase in frequency with engine or tire speed? If not it's probably just a heat shield rattle or something. If it were something that went along with engine or tire speed, then you could be worried.

    Also, when your clutch is burning, it's not something you typically hear, more smell, unless the throw out bearing is going out. Whoever told you that is someone you probably shouldn't consult for future automotive issues.

    Did this start after you did the clutch drop?

    These cars aren't designed to do that.

    You can always throw your stock parts back on and take it in for warranty service.

    He was joking. He's got a penchant for smartassery, and he's damned good at it.

    Sounds like the turbo heatshield rattling to me too. What heatshield did you get when you replaced your downpipe?

    down at the bottom passenger side, there is a small 10mm bolt that connects the heatshield to the uppipe bracket. It's a giant pain in the ass to get connected correctly. My cobb heatshield actually broke right there and started vibrating.

    That'd be the first place I'd look. There are a lot of vibrations between 1.5k and 3k. It'd make sense.
