Question clutch tsb!!

So i brought in my svt thursday to have them listen to the rattle in the clutch , they called me friday and told me they could not hear it ...... so i go there and he heard it , he was like well its pretty quite... but then told me ok they'll take a stethoscope or w/e to look and find the problem .. my question is , will this find the problem or are they just trying to hide the noise from me with a quick fix of some sort to get outa really doing the whole fix...... i suck with working on cars so any info would be wonderfull.... I hope they try to fix it!!!

ok yea i did tell them about the tsb i saw my report and it had the tsb on it , but the master tech. just told me they would take a stethoscope to find the problem .. i just thought that was wierd cause if they just do what the tsb says they could possible find the problem.

yeah i noticed some clutch chatter at the drive up window at Mc.D's this weekend (gotta love those 99 cent double cheeses!!) and i pushed the clutch in and it went away, and didn't come back...my past experiances with the dealership (the screwed up my euro wheels, and put gouges in my door panel) leads me to believe they should all be fired.....from a cannon into the sun. The Phrase "Stealership" comes to mind. There is a TSB for the car, hammer the point in and don't back down until they do what they are supposed to do, and thats fix the darn problem. I hate dealerships and regret ever going to one.

I had the same issue trying to get the TSB done. I found that when the car is sitting still, (running of course) if I put very light pressure on the clutch pedal, the noise becomes quite prevalent. Give that a shot. That sure shut up the mechanic.

Although since then, I've been having a bit of trouble getting the shifter into first. Gonna have to take it back AGAIN to have that fixed.

the service departments are hacks. They broke mine 3 times before I dropped the tranny and reinstalled the parts myself with the pressure plate done right. My clutch was literally locking up where it felt like you were squatting 250 lbs just to push the pedal down.
