Focus ST Clutch Pedal Vibration - HELP!

Hello,

I just picked up my 07 Focus ST on Friday and when the clutch pedal is depressed i get a vibration coming through the pedal up through my foot which is fairly noticeable. I took it back to the dealer and they said that this vibration is normal. Has anyone else with an ST noticed this ????

Thanks!

Going by your description it's not normal and you may be getting the run around. Go back to the dealer (or another dealer) and jump in another ST and try it out.

So after driving the car for the weekend I have found that it goes away when i turn the AC off. So when the car is idling, clutch pedal fully depressed when i turn the AC on then the vibration/pulsing though my foot starts. I got in another 07 ST and was able to reproduce this vibration but not to the extent that my car does it. The service center says he can not feel anything.

Can anyone else reproduce this vibration when the AC is engaged? If not i will try another service center.

Thanks

Sounds like the drag from the AC compressor is dragging down engine RPM causing the vibration though the whole vehilce. When you depress the clutch pedal the vibe is being sent though the body though the pedal and up your leg.

All 3 engine & transmission mounts are brand new and stiff so they transfert more vibration to the chassis , sadly it will go away...
