Hi
I have a mini 2003 non s...the car has developed a ticking noise while driving, when the clutch is pressed it disappears and does not make a sound when sitting in neutral and revving. It seems to speed up and down when accelerating. I understand these gear boxes are not that great and was assuming this is either the clutch or fly wheel common problem...I hope I'm wrong as I understand this is an expensive job...if anyone could shed some light on this and what cost anyone else had fixing this issue as I'm sure it's a 6 hour labour cost just to replace the clutch 馃槀
