Re: Clicking sound in clutch

<< Have heard such 'clicking' when depressing the clutch of our '86 5OOO for 
 the nearly two years we've had the car... the clutch MC was replaced 
 almost two years _before_ we got the car... so, from my perspective, if 
 we're hearing the same sound (not loud or annoying at all), I wouldn't 
 associate it with imminent clutch MC failure.
In fact, imminent clutch MC failure is usually associated with brake fluid on
the left shoe and on the floor....  Imminent clutch slave failure is
associated with brake fluid out of the bottom of the trans....  Clicking is
more likely a clutch component as in the throwout bearing and or the carrier
bearing in the crank, possibly even a worn pressure plate...
