Hi All,

Just recently had a new clutch installed, after say about 50 miles, when I press the clutch above 1700 RPM to change gear, I hear a springy sound, like metal scraping, I have taken it back to the garage and he says he cannot find any problems and suspects it could be the slave cylinder?

I've bought one to fit and try out, but, I seriously think that there's a bigger problem. I can feel the vibration through the pedal when I change gear, if I change gear under 1700 RPM there is no sound.

It's a really annoying one!

I hope you guys can help!

Well, the best thing you can do is take it back to the shop (again) that did the clutch job for you.
If other parts or components in the clutch system were failing or suspect, they should have advised you prior to buttoning up the job. Did they? Did you refuse to R & R additional components at that time?
It is possible they botched something when performing the job.
Which parts were replaced?
Can you post a pdf of the invoice received, showing parts R&R'ed?
Was a new input shaft pilot bearing / bushing installed into the crank shaft hub?
Your symptoms sound like a bad input shaft pilot bearing.....
Did you have the trans fluid changed while in the shop? You should have......
