Hi

Wife has a 2016 Corsa se, when I was driving it the other day I noticed that the clutch squeeks when operating and when in reverse it judder a bit.

Have booked in for service in a couple of weeks and wondered 1. If it is a problem 2.would it be covered under warranty?

I have the same issue.

They blamed it 1) on my induction kit 2) changing gear at to low revs. Had a argument for a good 45 minutes about how it isn’t either of those things. They said to go away and test it again and if it is still happening then come back. I will be booking it in again soon as it still happens and yes it will be covered by warranty if you still have it.

Take it to them.

Seems common issue with corsa E’s. It happened on my 1.2 and my 1.4T.

Thanks..... Did you get to the bottom of it so I can tell them what it is?

Nope. They try to blame everything. Even blamed the fact it was a turbo car....

Just go in and explain and hope for the best. Most likely will spray something on it to make the noise go away

So bit of advice here

Car went into Arnold Clark Vauxhall 2 weeks ago for service and I reported the fault, which they confirmed. They have spoke to Vauxhall who are advising to strip out the gear box and clutch to see what is issue. If warranty no problem, if not they are going to charge me £380 for 3.5 hours labour then the repair.

Car has only just done 14,000

I've had the squeaky clutch issue myself from time to time, however it's not really consistent enough to annoy me to the point where I'd want to get someone to take a look at it. If I'm honest, I haven't really heard it since my car was taken in for its last service (Maybe about a month ago?) so I'm guessing it wasn't that big of an issue in the first place.

Something strange that did happen yesterday though - after dropping a friend off, I put the car into 1st to set off again, found the bite and out of nowhere was a rather loud "bang" and the car stalled. I quickly got out to inspect to front of my vehicle as it sounded like I had hit something but there was nothing there for me to have hit.

Bit of a strange one, but since then my car has been functioning just fine and nothing seems out of place...

Possibly your brake pads or shoes had binded to disks/drums and suddenly freed up when you attempted to move.
