Hi all! I have a july build 2002 MCS(15%pulley,CAI,SS,rear sway bar) and I have lately had the impression that my clutch,with just under 42,000 miles is beginning to die.I am a spirited driver, but I have always been conscious of things like riding the clutch pedal (one of my honda civics,of 4, had 155,000 miles on the original clutch).At the same time, I have never had a car with this much power, either. What are people getting for mileage out of their clutches? The first clue was a low groan when pulling into traffic up an incline,coupled with a slight shudder.The clutch seems to engage a little lower, too.Also, I have heard mostly negative comments on heavy duty "racing" clutch replacements, mostly in the form of "God, I wish I hadn't put THAT in"; excessive pedal pressure, etc.Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.What's this going to cost if it's truely in need of replacement? Thanks, Jock

Clutch noise

Check out the clutch noise information in the Faults & fixes forum. I have a 2002 also and have reported the noise.
