Manual transmission problem

Seeking input from those with the 6 speed manual SS's. When I let the clutch out slowly to make slow-speed maneuvers, such as backing out of a parking space or in stop-and-go traffic, the vehicle shakes and chatters. The dealer replaced the clutch, pressure plate and flywheel which made it worse. Still working with dealer.

Anyone have/had this problem? Car only has 19K miles.

Unless you have a misfire causing engine shake (you would no doubt have fault light) it is probably the clutch. I assume the problem was not there from day one?

I wouldn't be so sure that they left the flywheel and just changed the pp and disc. The flywheel must be replaced and is not machinable like the old days.

Clutch chatter. Common during break in. If it lasts more then 500 miles take it back. Can also occur if they didn't re surface the flywheel

How many miles have you put on the new clutch since it was replaced by your dealer? As V8only mentioned, it is normal to get some chatter during initial break-in, even on a stock clutch, but should go away completely after a few hundred miles.

If it does. It go away after breakin they need to replace the flywheel. Again these flywheels do not get resurface. They get replaced. Best case would be to replace the flywheel, disc, and PP as a set.

Bump up the rpm as you back out / take off.

It is great to have a smooth clutch you can use just off idle.
But not every clutch will act shudder free at all rpm ranges. Sometimes they do once broken in.
However, clutches are designed to slip to smoothly hook up a power train and adding 1000rpm to your takeoff won't hurt anything.

Loose powertrain mounts will cause this too. Clutch should not chatter.

I would take the vehicle back to the dealer, show the service manager the issue and have the issue resolved. Like most stated you should not be shaking and chattering the a clutch replacement.
