Wobbling Sound Goes Away When Clutch Pressed Down
One thing I've noticed with the car is that I've been hearing a wobble/rattle noise coming from the engine bay area. I only really hear it at idle, and when I press the clutch pedal down the noise goes away. I also hear it for a second when the car is turning over.
It sounds like a pulley is wobbling and loose, although I'm not sure if that's what it is. I'm thinking the throw-out bearing? I searched and found a lot of people are hearing a similar noise and they're all saying if you have it, it's normal and not harmful. THey say it's the dual-mass flywheel? The car shifts like butter and drives beautifully, but this noise is kind of concerning.
I got it from a Toyota dealership which gave me a 60 day warranty, so before I bring it to them, I wanna know if this is normal, or OK.
If you search on youtube "mini cooper s wobble/rattle" you'll see my video of the noise. (Username is apexjesse)
You can notice the sound mainly at 0:01-0:06 and 0:25-0:29 seconds.
