I just had my clutch replaced on my 2002 Spyder CC at 18,000 miles. It was 100% worn, however I bought the car with 15,800 so I never drove the car before with a brand new clutch. I got the car back and notice that in 1st and 2nd, when getting at 4000 RPM and higher, I can feel and hear a rumbling noise and what feels to be like the car is running over a street grate from 4000 rpm and above....I do not get this feeling in 3rd thru 6th..

Is this normal? again, this being the first time with a 100% clutch, I do not know if this is normal.

the feeling reminds me of a common issue with BMWs, a U Joint Problem,

thanks

I just want to get some feedback here before I send the car back to the dealer...

I bought my 2002 Coupe CC with 4500 miles on it and I hear the same ~thud~ when it shifts between 1st and 2nd and between 2nd and 3rd. It seems to only happen in Sport mode and when you are accelerating during the shift. It's not as noticable if you happen to let up on the gas just prior to a shift.

...now if I could only get rid on break squeel <sigh>

If this is a continuous rubling noise then I think you have a problem.
The "thud" referred to by thash is the sound produced by the cambio system operating the clutch when you are hammering along in sport mode and don't let up the throttle on shifting. It is a one-off on each up-shift, not a continuous noise.

thanks guys...

I am familar with the thud when shifting, but this is different, ...

It happens this way,

Begin in 1st, accelerate from stop to 4000 RPM, at 4000 rpm begin feeling like the car is driving over rollers up until I shift out of 1st...

now in 2nd....all is well up until 4000 RPM, then I get the same vibration sensation until I shift out of 2nd...

in 3rd....4th 5th 6th....can roll up to any RPM w.o any abnormal vibrations....

If you haven't figured this out yet- Take it back is right!

I had this issue and they removed a "Shim??" and it fixed the problem.

Same exact scenario. It was put in too tight somehow...
