My glanza has recently been making a creaking sound and also like a metal spring flicking sound when i press the clutch pedal in,
It only does it from cold and once warmed up it will usually go away,

I have a exedy paddle clutch fitted and it been in since 2013.
This week the pedals been feeling very soft and also the engage point is high and when changing gears i dont feel the clutch releasing and engaging.

Im not 100% sure to be honest,
But id assume around 6000-7000

Im getting a competition clutch stage 2 for £100 tomorrow will be fitting that on with a new slave cylinder and fresh fluid.

I changed the clutch it was the clutch making the sound, as you can see in the pictures the clutch is dead.

The gearbox input shaft has some in and out play would this cause any problems?
I rebuilt it a couple months ago so i dont know why its got play.

dont worry about the movement of the input shaft its not to bad its kinda normal  the input shaft is only located in situ by the outer bearing spring below 5th gear

Ah i see so i was right,

I also got an annoying problem,

When im crusing in low gears and i let of the accelerator it jerk forward and back, also the same when i accelerate.

Can it be the tps or rear mount? The mounts are polybushed already

Its engine movement,
Not something with the electrics.

Can feel slight play in gearstick but nothing too severe.
