2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10: Throwout Bearing Noise

September 08, 2010

As you engage the clutch in our longterm 2009 Dodge Viper on any kind of hill in first gear -- especially when the car is cold -- the clutch's throwout bearing makes a pronounced "wooooo!" noise. At least, I think it's the TOB -- maybe one of our Viper-owning readers could shed some light on this if it's a common thing.

It's been doing this since day one and hasn't become noticeably worse or different, so I'm calling it "normal."

The moment the clutch is fully engaged, the noise stops and you can continue with your plans of terrorizing the county's inhabitants.
