I have a 2002 MCS with these problems, and don't have a clue about what they are:
1. When stopped at a stop light, car in neutral, foot off clutch, there is a knocking sound. when I depress the clutch, it goes away and doesn't come back until the next time it happens.

2. On take off, the clutch squeals. Doesn't matter if I let it out slowly or quickly. Is this a clutch plate problem?

Thanks for your help

The clutch click you hear in normal if the clutch is let out and the car in in netural. Every car I've had with a clutch did that. It's the throw out bearing.

As for the squeal, bad news, Sport, start looking for a new cluthch. My '87 Toyota truck started that, now it's time for me to get a new clutch, (hey, once in 227,000 miles ain't too bad, right?).

How many mile you got on your buggy?

Clutch noise

I've only got about 22,000 miles on the car -- I shouldn't have this problem. Not this soon. Not ever. Been driving a great number of years and never had a clutch problem.
Thanks for your help.
