Question Squealing/chirping/whining only goes away when clutch is engaged

I hate to start another thread about this, but I sifted thru as many of the other threads as I could and couldn't find anything definitive to my situation. My truck: 2006 Tacoma Access Cab 4x4 6spd Manual

The problem I'm having is that my truck squeals ALL the time unless I depress the clutch pedal. It seems like a lot of other drivers have the issue of the truck only squealing when the clutch is depressed, which would be the throw out bearing, but mine is the opposite. I believe it is also throw out bearing related, but I need a sanity check before I go throwing money at replacing something that may not actually be the problem.

I've been seeing the PDM solution come up quite a bit, yet no link to the actual website, so here it is for anyone who still can't find them (since it took me awhile to narrow down who PDM was) http://www.pdmtsk.com/home.html

For awhile I thought it was the belt or a pulley, but the belt has been replaced and I noticed that it is 100% clutch pedal related after some vigorous testing with my left foot.

I don't think you're going to get an answer.

Oh, well that explains the lack of response. Well thanks for telling me.

It's most likely your throw out bearing and if your going to replace that you should go ahead and drop a clutch in it since it's already going to be apart

Have the exact same problem, squeaky noise I can hear when parked or at a stop light in neutral, goes away when clutch is pressed in.

Mine has been doing this for well over a year now or even longer. It is currently not a DD. Is this something I should be concerned about, or just keep driving? Truck has about 100k miles.

I will search TW for some more info in this. Thanks for any input.
