    Hoping some of you guys can help me with the noise I'm hearing from my clutch...

    After searching on here, I've found that the throw out bearing makes a whiny/squeeling noise when the clutch is NOT engaged. Well, my clutch is making noise only when the clutch pedal is pushed in/engaged. It is a winding/whiny noise, similar to what I've heard described as the throw out bearing. But at idle there is no noise, like I said only when I push in the clutch, and it does not happen all the time, it may do it one day and not the next.

    Does this still sound like a throw out bearing? Thanks in advance for the help!

    Bad pilot bearing is my guess.

    Plan on replacing everything sometime soon before it really comes apart.
