    Ok so I have a 2010 2.7L with 5 speeds and 133k miles and notice a while ago that I have a strange noise that seems to be coming from the front or driver side of the engine. Noise is not always there and disapear when I press the clutch in or when I shut off the the a/c fan. Then if I turn it back on the noise is no longer there... for now I don't really know if the noise really disapear after pressing the clutch of after shutting off the fan since I always try both... I wil work on this this week. I also didn't notice the sound last winter when using heat instead of a/c...

    Heard that it might the throw out bearing. I don't really know much about transmissions... I know I can have bought a truck with a bad throw out bearing but I thought it was more a 6 speed problem. I do consider any case to be possible.

    I also think it could be a failure somewhere in the a/c component. Red somewhere that someone replace his a/c compressor clutch... is it a common part to be changed?

    The noise is not really annoying, close to be discrete... so i've never stresses about it. But now my father notice it too a few times when I leave his place and I tell him I don't know what it is and that it goes away when I do the the fan/clutch thing. So now i am starting to consider it like something that need to be fix...

    I'm looking for opinions and real life experience. I will try to take a sound clip this week to help.

    Edit: Tried to take a sound clip but it is barely noticeable on the video with the engine running... but I can tell it is clutch related since when I press it in the noise stop, and when I release it it comes back, but not always...

    Thanks!

    Not sure how the transmission and a/c compressor are related

    Bring it to a shop and have them diag it. Your not going to get any kind of an answer here that will help you. Imagine the look on the service writers face when you say "I was on the internet and someone said my throw out bearing is on it's way out".

    me either... but might be related with an increase of the idle when the fan is on?
