Dear customer, did the steering wheel have play before you replaced it?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
no. the only issue was when the clutch was used

Dear customer, was the clutch ball joint or clutch fork replaced?

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 12 days ago.

Dear customer, the problem you present is very characteristic of a wear of the clutch or clutch fork, my main advice is to check a new adjustment of the whole system, and to check the tripods and other elements that could generate a sound in this area, although they are usually different causes and problems between failures in the tripods and clutch sometimes to the simple ear it is possible to confuse.
