240 "chirps" when putting into first gear

Discussion in 'Volvo 240' started by BrooklynSwede, Dec 9, 2005.

  1. Just bought a 1993 240 5-speed wagon and on the drive home noticed an
    occassional chirp/squeak when moving into first or sometimes second
    gear. It doesn't always happen and it is very quiet and quick. Anyone
    have any ideas of what this might be?

    Sometimes I get this too. I assumed that it was a tiny clutch noise,
    maybe from some slipping? It only happens when I'm pushing it a bit. I
    don't think that these cars are exactly peppy if you know what I mean..
    I've had my 240 wagon ('89) for about 3 years and this noise has not
    developed into anything bad (so far).
