(Bear with me, I'm doing this from my phone so please forgive the occasional misspellings and auto filled words)
Bought my 06 in October, everything was great until a week ago when I noticed that getting up to highway speed, 55+, I felt a vibration in the clutch I'd never felt before. Although this is a terrible description, I'd describe the vibration as though the gears were spinning too fast... I dunno, I have an overactive imagination.
Anyway, thought it may have been a one time thing, didn't notice it at all this week until today driving you my buddies house. Happened for a few seconds until I slowed down to 50 or below. Got to his house, hung out for a while, then I got back in and the vibration was there in 1st gear with the shifter head moving noticeably and so on through the gear changes. Limped it home, and now, on top of the vibration I notice a rattle under her that's there until I engage the clutch.
The two may be completely unrelated, which is just heartbreaking. I'd hoped to have broken the first thing doing something I know I shouldn't.
I'm a little strapped for cash, so I'd like to nail down a few good leads before I start replacing things just because.
Thanks all in advance,
