    FRS 2013, Rattle/Grinding Sound when stoping and shifting gears

    Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

    I know there are a car experts in this forum, and I thought you might want to share your opinion with me regarding an issue I'm having with my FRS 2013.

    I will take the car to the mechanic. I just wanted to pass this by you, and see what you think...

    I bought a used car last month, is a slightly used FRS 2013 with 14,500 miles. after driving the car for couple of weeks I'm noticing a weird noise.

    Rattle sound:
    After running the car for couple of miles and speeding up to 45 miles, a rattle sound appears when the car is in the process of stopping completely.

    How to replicate the sound:
    - Accelerate car until velocity reaches at least 45 miles
    - Shift gears to neutral,
    - Press the break to come to a complete stop,
    - As the car is in the process of stopping, a rattle sound starts as velocity gets closer to 20 miles,
    - Then the sound stops when the car stops.

    Grinding sound:
    After running the car for couple of miles, shifting grears between neutral, 1st and 2nd produce a grinding noise.

    Have you had any similar experience with this type of car?

    Check the clutch throw out bearing. Mine failed along with the bearing carrier/fork.
    They are poorly designed at the factory and may be the source of your issue. I had mine go bad a while back and had it replaced with a better designed set. It was rattling at idle in neutral and could, if it is far enough gone, cause issues shifting
