I had the clutch replaced 2 yrs ago

Ok, then that squealing noise is coming from the release (throw out) bearing. The clutch itself is probably ok.

You will need to have the transmission removed, and the bearing replaced. Not an expensive part, but the labor will be oh 4 to 5 hours to do that.

Just FYI, the release bearing pushes on the clutch pressure plate when you step on the pedal. If the bearing starts to fail, then it makes that noise.

I hope this helps, and if you need further assistance, please ask!
