Clutch Noise

  1. my clutch makes a high pitch screetching noise when i push it in. when its not in it sounds like its rubbing something but not constant. it makes the rubbing sound often, but not all the time. also, when i push in the clutch pedal it goes it smooth but it sounds like its streching. the clutch works fine so im thinking its the blowout (clutch release) bearing or the clutch cable has actually streched.
  2. I think you mean "throwout" bearing. From what you describe, that would be my guess is making the noise.
  3. sounds like throwout bearing
  4. It does sound like the bearing will soon throw up from the blow out.
    You might as well expect to replace or at least resurface the other components while in there. Unless you ride the clutch pedal a lot, the plate, flywheel and disc are likely worn too.
