2003 BMW 320D 6SPEED MSPORT
IN NEUTRAL WHEN PRESSING CLUTCH HALF WAY DOWN MAKES RUMBLING NOISE BUT STOPS WHEN FULLY PRESSED.
CANNOT HEAR IT AT ALL WHEN DRIVING AND IT HASNT EFFECTED THE DRIVING IN ANY WAY
I WAS TOLD THE BEARING IS DRY AND WAS WONDERING IS THE ANYWAY TO OIL IT / QUICK FIX IT OR DO THEY HAVE TO BE REPLACED.
IF HAS TO BE REPLACED HOW LONG COULD I RUN IT TILL REPLACING THE THRUST BEARING?
Doubt there is any way to get to it to oil it. Plus any oil could drip or be thrown onto clutch.
It could go for ages, and tbh when the gearbox is out. I would advise to replace the whole clutch anyway. So really it won't matter If the bearing damages the clutch.
But you should have years out of it as long as you are aware of it and keep your foot off the clutch as much as possible.
