Expert:  Tool Hut replied 9 months ago.

They just put in a clutch and now you have a noise? They should have changed the fluid. If you lightly touch clutch does the noise change? If you slightly turn steering wheel when driving back and forth does it change? What speed is it loudest

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No it doesn't change under 60 it's loud was on vacation when it first started over 60 no noise
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 9 months ago.

was it making noise before clutch?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It wasn't making noise until I didn't see a curb inputment and ran over it but garage says transfer case
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 9 months ago.

To check the fluid level you need to remove left front wheel.

Expert:  Tool Hut replied 9 months ago.

Did they say final drive? Your car doesnt have a transfer case. If you ran over curb it is very likely you cracked the case. They should be able to install a used one fairly reasonably.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No they said something about transmission
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 9 months ago.

It is hard to say for sure without seeing it. If you just want to check the fluid it requires removal of drivers front tire. If you hit an imputment it is likely you have internal damage,
