Tapping grinding sound in 1987 260e

Asked by May 03, 2013 at 10:11 PM about the Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This sound started about two weeks ago and at first only lasted for about ten mins of
driving. But it seems to be getting more constant, comes and goes. Inside it sounds like a
bee flying around or real fast popcorn like ticking. It seems to be coming from the back
lower part of the engine it increases with r.p.m

One of the center springs came out of the clutch and it's bouncing around the bellhousing area.
