I’ve noticed a small rattle with my 2014 RAV4 Diesel manual with 21k kms on the clock.
I first heard the ‘rattle’ when in neutral whent the clutch is engaged. When I press the clutch in the rattle disappears.
The car drives normally with smooth gear changes and no noticed difference in the clutch pedal feedback/pressure.
Having noticed it, I hear the rattle throughout the gears although its hard to hear clearly due to the diesel motor sound and road noise.
I did stall the car last week at low speed and I think I’m just being paranoid but I can’t remember the noise being there before. I only really noticed it a couple of days ago.
I read about throwbearings or clutch springs being loose making rattle sounds but I suppose it could be something else entirely.
I’ll take it into Toyota this week if I an but I’d like some expert knowledge in case they tell me to replace the clutch!
Thanks in advance!
