    So it just started yesterday....when the clutch pedal is pressed in I can hear an almost grinding or rubbing sound, and when at a dead stop I take off in first, when the clutch engages it sounds exactly like a squeaky belt....

    Supposedly the clutch is only about 7 months old...any ideas?

    Im attaching a couple pictures, maybe they can help...

    Likely the throwout bearing. You may try some lithium grease but when you get the grind it is likely on it's last leg. I just had mine replaced recently and the clutch was only about 8-9 months old. Those bearings that come with those clutches are garbage. Best to order one from Ford...make sure it is a Ford Racing bearing
