groaning clutch when taking off from stationary position

Hi

My clutch has started to groan quite loadly when taking off from stationary position in first gear. I understand this is quite a common issue in minis.

I drive a cooper s 2009 R56 with 40K kilometres

Could someone advise what the problem is likely to be and the cost of repairing it.

UPDATE - has also started to moan when accelerating hard whilst in motion (when not touching the clutch)

Is it slipping (i.e. are the engine rpms increasing without a corresponding increase in acceleration)?

Sounds to me like your flywheel is finished but you're still pretty low at 40,000km. Are you the first owner?

Replacement of flywheel, etc.... at a dealer will be quite expensive. Look for a good local shop. Can't advise on Australian prices, but a dealer clutch job here in Europe ran me up a 1600+ euro bill.
