had a new clutch fitted last night and I now noticed a knocking sound coming from the front, sounds speed related when I slightly press the brake the sound becomes more obvious, but it stops when you fully press the brake down but I then get a creaking sound coming from what sounds like under the drivers foot well. Any ideas I'm going away wednesday and need the car to get to Gatwick.

sounds like something hasn't been put back correctly or even tightened!

Do they have to drop the gearbox to change the clutch. If so, probably the gear box mount not tightened up correctly or needs replacing.

wouldnt suprise me i checked the wheels and they didnt take much to loosen, tightend them up and the braking noise has stopped but still have the knocking every now and then normally starts when the car has warmed up a bit.
not too worried now tho had a prang with a BMW today looks as if tho mines a write off just my luck.
