Clutch judder

Recommended Posts



My 2011 520d clutch has an intermittent judder in the clutch. When pressing down the pedal a judder can be felt through the pedal. This seems to be constant and not related to engine speed. Gear change is fine. Sometimes when this happens at tick over there is a low noise that seems to be in time with the judder. This noise is there whether the clutch pedal is pressed or not. 


I'm assuming this is the flywheel?  The car has only done 80,000 miles. Could it be something else?

To be honest, it's a known fault on these. I'd still take it in to BMW dealer, it's not unheard of for them to sort it as goodwill. 

Google 320d/520d clutch judder and you'll see a lot of results.
