Have Jeep Questions? Ask a Jeep Repair Expert for Answers
Hello I will help you with your question,
The sound you are hearing is the throwout bearing in the clutch assembly running dry. The bearing will need to be replaced which means removing the transmission. Due to the cost of labor removing the transmission it it customary to replace the whole clutch assembly along with the bearing so it does not need to be renewed for a very long time.
Please let me know how I can help you with your questions
