I learned to live with it as did everybody else, but now you got yours installed and i think you're the first person without any noise whatsoever.
one thing i noticed is that the noise will go away or get considerably less after about an hour of driving around. my theory is that the longer i drive, the hotter it gets in the bell housing and since it's an aluminum flywheel, it expands in heat. when it expands, the chatter goes away...
anyways, i'm gonna show the mechanic/installer the video you posted when i get my oil change done in a few weeks. if you can think of anything else, i would greatly appreciate it!
If you got the chatter after two weeks, i think that i also have to wait and see because i installed mine yesterday.
My mechanic told me that this was the fisrt time that he installed the disk's springs flywheel side. normally in all the cars springs go trans side.
He told me that if i wasn't present, he would do the same with my ride.
But the spec disk and installation papers specifically mention that springs on this one go flywheel side.
Perhaps it's this.To see what's going on you have to dismantle the gear box again,something that has nothing to do with oil change.
I think it's worth the try to do it.
But i believe that the chatter isn't from the flywheel, it comes either from the clutch assembly or the gear box.
If it's from the clutch and you say that chatter goes away when it gets hot it make sense that there is something wrong with the bearing because when the pressure plate around it gets hot they fins expand and eliminate all clearances if any.
Why didn't you install a new bearing? It comes along with the clutch kit.
If you are going to install a new one, get the genuine part japan made.
I'm always present when someone fixes my car because a lot of engineers just want to finish as soon as they can and take your money.
