Suzuki Ignis (2019)

Provide an overview of the problem

Jerky clutch operation and abnormal noise when clutch pedal depressed or released.

Please provide details of the issue you have and what you have tried so far.

We have a 2019 Suzuki Ignis in for service and the customer has mentioned that the car has a jerky clutch operation and also an abnormal noise when the clutch pedal is depressed or released. We have lubricated the moving parts of the clutch pedal assembly but the clutch operation is still jerky and the noise still persists. Have other Ignis owners reported this fault before?

What does Autodata recommend?

Yes, the jerky clutch operation you have described has been reported to us before by other Ignis owners. The issue is due to insufficient lubrication of the clutch release lever. Remove the clutch cable from the clutch release lever. Thoroughly clean the clutch release lever and clutch cable ball joint contact surfaces. Apply grease to contact surface of clutch release lever. Fit the clutch cable to the clutch release lever. Ensure clutch cable is correctly adjusted. Operate the clutch pedal to ensure the fault has been rectified.
