Ok heres the deal, my car runs 100% fine, it has 40 k miles on it but i have one slight issue.


when i quick shift, or power shift the car, i hear a squealing noise, kinda sounds like some sort of belt slipping. its a very quick squeal, and no its not the tires. it squeals for the split second that im letting go of the clutch during a powershift.

any ideas on what this could be?

YouTube - 08 GTI vs 07 si *Round Two*

heres a vid of what it sounds like, this isn't my car, listen to the squeal between shifts. please dont delete the thread because it involves a race, just dont look at it and listen to the sound :-D

I dont have sound at work, but if your squeeking its probably the "chirp" that you get from aggressively shifting and the tires "chirping". When you shift aggresively and basically dump the clutch each time you shift your going to be throwing a lot more power onto your wheels, your tires are trying to find traction.

a clutch could make a squealing noise like that? i mean the car doesn't make any wierd noises while driving normal, but only while powershifting.
