    Hi all !

    My name's Remy and I drive a 135.000 KM Fiat Punto (5 doors, diesel, got a full sucessful check-up last month).

    Today as I was leaving work, I started hearing a weird noise from the engine. It looks like it's coming from the front-left part of the car, just behind my pedals.

    The "noise" sounds like a low "tac tac tac tac tac". It's not easy to describe it, sorry. :confused:

    I have tested some things :

    - I have the noise when the car is moving, even with the engine turned off
    - It happens with all gears
    - The sound is most intense when the clutch is fully engaged
    - The sound is mostly present when doing low RPMs
    - The sound goes away when going high-RPMs if I'm pressing the gas pedal
    - I can still hear a bit the sound at high-RPMs if I don't press the gas pedal but a gear is engaged

    I really don't know what to do? Maybe it'll be gone by tomorow but I don't want to risk ruining the car. I can't really afford major fixes right now.

    If you have any idea or bit of info I would be very glad to hear it :(

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Could be a bad clutch bearing, can you record and upload the noise
