Evening all! Recently our 2.4AAB 1993 T4 with 168000 on the clock developed a shaking clutch pedal. Sometimes there, sometimes not but certainly a new problem. It has always had a grumble going into 1st and 3rd gear so I decided to bite the bullet and get it looked at. In the absence of having a local garage I can trust (The good ones I know can't get the van in as its a solid hi-top!) I took it to the local VW dealership. Yes I know! The have started looking at it today and so far have come back with this little (!) list;

Clutch needs attention (Fair enough - I was expecting a new clutch kit)
Rear reversing light not working (Hopefully a bulb)
Wipers are worn (Whatever!)
Roll bars need replacing (No sign of this on the last MOT and its barely done 2000 miles since!)

Then the one which is really worrying me...

Knocking coming from the engine needs investigation.

Please can you all tell me that this is not the big ends?! If it is a mechanic friend of mine has suggested a new engine would be the best option! I have three weeks until the arrival of our first baby and this is not the time for buying engines!

Any input gratefully received!:eek:

Could it not be the dual mass flywheel is on its way out, they make a kind of knocking noise.
not on a 93 2.4 ,,,,solid flywheel as standard
