Hello everyone

 

Im a new driver. i have a citi golf and when its in neutral and i release clutch, from halfway, it makes a grinding noise, but when i press it in completely the noise stops. its also making the noise when im in 1st gear leaving the clutch to pull away and then from 2nd gear it doesnt make the noise anymore. When i get to 5th gear the noise is there again but then the car doesnt gain momentum but only refs and loses speed. Some assisstance would be of great help please and thank you.

Sounds like your clutch is flipped.

i agree with adam-, the mk1 models don't have a fancy dual mass flywheel so either your clutch has gone or the release bearing is on it's way out... or maybe just maybe the fork in the bellhousing that moves the release bearing is deformed... but in all cases it means that the gearbox has to come off to inspect the problem.

I was going to say release but it reads like it's slipping in 5th too.
