I was moving brush with the 2030. Going to get another load, when I heard metal banging for just a few seconds. I imediately stopped. First thing I noticed was the clutch took only about 1/2 the normal effort to push in. Then I saw the the inspection port cover on the left side of the clutch housing was missing. A few feet back from where I stopped I found the inspection cover.
The noise was gone, the tractor still shifted and moved, so back to barn I went. I looked in the inspection port with a strong flash light. The pressure plate was "up" at one of the fingers. I then used a magnet to fish around inside. I caught nothing.
Splitting the tractor was not too hard, just tedious and dirty work.
A link from one of the fingers on the pressure plate to the back spring plate was gone. The finger was also broken where the link attached.
