Clutches are usually excluded from warranties, unless you can show that it's a defect rather than wear'n'tear. My old Saxo clutch went, a spring broke, jamming the whole mechanism. The clutch linings were fine, though.
Driven sympathetically, a clutch can last ages (my French Renault van has 148,000 miles on the original clutch). It's not the mileage that wears the clutch out, it's the nature of the journeys.
Low mileages aren't necessarily an advantage. Stop/start city driving means lots of wear on the clutch and many other parts. It's impossible to tell how any previous owner has driven it. I cringe when I hear a 'clucth burner' drive past... poor car!

Mother in law has an 11 plater (or might be a 10)..Pug 30..8 is it? New thing, hatch?
Nice, but french build quality. Autobox (e-CVT with semi-auto mode) has thrown a rod now 3 times in 2 months, dealership sit round with their thumbs up their bottoms, saying "ummerr..." and being generally unhelpful.
Contrast that to all my autos - UK made, not one under 11 years old, daily short trips, not treated with kid gloves...utterly reliable.
Missus now understands why I say "French car? Rather push the Astra, dearest..".

When stationary does the rattling sound go away when you press the clutch and then come back when you release the clutch? if so it may be the clutch release bearing. If it rattles all the time when stationary with the clutch in and out it would not be the clutch its the gearbox, have you checked for a gearbox oil leak and made sure their is enough oil in the gearbox?

It seems common on the 107/C1/Aygo for the clutch to go around every 30k

As others have said, it seems that a lot of people are having defective clutches around the 20K mark. The Toyota variant (Aygo) has had the problem mostly resolved by putting in a modified clutch, and replacing faulty ones with Yaris parts.
I can see them trying to fob you off, so it may be a case of CAB/Trading standards. If that doesn't get you anywhere, a trusted local garage with the part swapped out with a Yaris clutch may be your best bet.

I agree with this. I have a Pug 307 and just replaced my clutch and it also had this noise, along with a "clunking" and bit of resistance when you put down the clutch pedal.

If anyone on here owns a Pug I can highly recommend Peugeot Forums The Pug Central forum is good but quite often you don't get a reply to your query.
