    2004 2.2 diesel. has just lost all drive, car starts and runs perfect good clutch pedal, driving off at juntion this morning, loud bang under car and no drive gears!goes in and out of all gears smooth smoothly, on tick over there is a faint muffled bump bump bump noise, only heard inside car can't hear that outside. select gear and let out clutch and the bump, bump gets faster. out of gear in idol it returns to slower bump bump noise.
    . Clutch was starting to slip slightly for past month or so, have a brand new clutch bought ( gen honda) no rattles or snatchy clutch what so ever only a very slight slip now and again. Any ideas? im thinking the clutch has stripped the teeth and not engaging but im no mechanic. Wifes car and now really stuck. If its the clutch is there a DMF in this model and does it give bother? if there is would it be prudent to buy one for the kit i have now?
    Had a mondeo and you know when that clutch is on it's way out rattleing and dust in starter etc. nothing like that here though. still feels smooth and quite?
    All suggestion appreciated please.

    Was the release bearing replaced when they did the clutch?

    Did the garage that did the job have the right tools (there's a special tensioning tool required for pre-tensioning the clutch when installing) to do the job ?

    If they didn't then it will need all come off to be done properly again !

    Has the new clutch actually been fitted?

    Ah yes looks like it's only been "bought" and not fitted.

    Well still make sure your mechanic has the right tools for the job. He can check the DMF once he has it off for play and let you know if that needs replacing. They are quite expensive though.

    Thanks guys,
    the new clutch is not fitted yet ( should have done this a while back) I don't have a DMF for it so might need that as well. Would the clutch make drive no existant? from good to nothing in a split second?
    If a drive shaft was broken would that not make a clatter when gear engaged as the end spins loose?
    Again im no mechanic!

    Sorry to hear about your problem, I think if the release bearing was damaged or faulty the clutch would not feel smooth. This sounds like a drive shaft issue, or first gear is damaged. I hope you get it sorted.

    cheers guys,
    The gears all select with no crunch, or nasties at all still smooth and free. just no drive in any gear. would a drive shaft be an easier fix? anyone got a like to the part it might be just in case I need one

    I had my driveshaft going on my Civic, similar as you. The car won't move. If it is the driveshaft, you need to know which side is broken.

    Yes, if either one of your driveshafts has broken then the car cannot move because all drive will be transmitted by the differential drive to the free end of the broken driveshaft.

    I'd grab a torch and simply lie down next to the car and look at the driveshafts to see if one has snapped and is now hanging down.
