Hello! Welcome to justanswer!


When the sound stops, is this when your foot is off the clutch pedal?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes .but the sound stops when I'm releasing the clutch pedal about 1/3 of the way up.
Expert:  Anthony replied 6 years ago.
It the clutch release bearing. The part has run out of grease so thats why its making noise now. Its just as hard to do the bearing as it is to do a new clutch. So you may as well do both.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
any guestimate on what this might cost ?...(.I won't hold you to it)
Expert:  Anthony replied 6 years ago.
Its 4.1 hours of labor plus about $275 for the clutch kit.
