Q: Clutch acting up

asked by on

The clutch is making noises.

Hi. Clutch noise that is generally noticed when its applied (foot down) would be blamed on a throw-out bearing, while a noise that is heard while the clutch is engaged is typical of a pilot bearing. I would recommend having a trained mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose which bearing is causing the noise.
