Hard Clicking When Pressing Clutch Pedal

Hey,

Does anyone else get a hard clicking sound and feeling when pressing the clutch pedal?

It seems to happen about 80% of the time when pressing it in. Gear changes while on the move. Going from N to 1st, etc.

2018 OG M2.

Nearly 44k miles now on my 2017 OG 6MT and have never experienced any clicking from the clutch pedal. I would definitely have that checked out under warranty.

It’s the clutch and it’s pretty normal to hear at low speeds in a parking lot or pulling into a garage, etc. Been like that since the day I took it home from delivery.

mine doesn't click at all. I'd get down in the footwell and actuate the pedal with your hand - see if you can get it to happen. Maybe with your head down there you can get a better idea of what exactly is clicking.

Have it back at the dealership for them to take a look at it along with a rattle sound in the dashboard that's been ongoing forever.

I'll update when I hear the results.

It's your clutch pedal stop buffer. Part# 35311103849. It's under a dollar for the part, you can reach behind your clutch and feel it out and swap it yourself, takes less than a minute. It's a plastic piece that creates a softer buffer in between your clutch and the contact point on the car which eliminates the clicking noise.

Interesting. It's still at BMW now. I'll look into that if they say they don't know what it is.

That seems unlikely, as that part is a little rubber bumper no bigger than a penny. Unless OP's pedal is clicking at the bottom of its travel, it's unlikely that the rubber bumper is the cause.

OP are you sure it's not just chatter? As I said before it's pretty normal on these cars as mine has been on the noisy side since the day I picked it up a year ago;

That said you shouldn't be feeling vibrations through the pedal so maybe there's something different going on with your car but if you aren't used to a noisy clutch this car takes a little getting used to.

Is it right at the top of the travel (like less than a 1/4" of travel)? I get it too. Almost like the pivot joint the clutch pedal attaches to is moving sideways or something.

It never bothered me enough to check/fix, but its certainly there.

It's not chatter, this is a defined clicking feel and noise at the top 1/4" or so of depressing the clutch.

Yes that may be it. We'll see what BMW says.

Same issue. Took it in but of course the tech couldn't replicate, even though before I gave them the car I demonstrated it.

Going to take it back to another dealership. Not only is the noise driving me insane but you can feel like the click in the clutch pedal. It's almost like a spring is not seated properly but eventually conforms to the proper position once pressure is applied. Happens about 40% of the time for me.
