Hey guys, I'm new here and hope to get help regarding an issue I'm facing with my '00 GTS. I was cruising and while I was shifting into sixth gear, I heard sort of a small metal piece hitting the front left wheel well and then falling onto the ground, ignored it as it might have been something on the road. Then, I started to feel like my clutch pedal is sort of grinding whenever I'm releasing the clutch pedal. It's not the grinding noise coming from a bad throw-out bearing, neither do I feel like it has anything to do with the clutch itself but rather the linkage, primary/slave cylinder, etc. I have read up about different clutch pedal issues in Gen 1 and Gen 2 Vipers and also know about the infamous birdcage bushing problem but I can assure you the symptoms are not the same for me. If I release the clutch very slowly, the grinding sensation is not there (moving from a complete stop) but if I'm shifting from second to third for example and releasing the clutch at a faster rate, I can feel it happening right where the clutch engages. Sometimes I feel like the clutch pedal even gets stuck. I'd be very surprised if it's a clutch cylinder issue as the car has about 8,000 miles only. Unfortunately I have tried every way of going in the foot-well area and looking for anything in the linkage but I couldn't. Thanks!
