Q: Hear buzzing noise when pressing clutch.

asked by on

When the clutch is pushed it makes a high-pitched buzzing noise that seems to match the high and low sound the transmission makes when you accelerate and decelerate.

From your description it sounds like you may have a bad pilot bearing, input shaft bearing, or release bearing. The engine noise may be a separate issue, but I would have to hear it first hand to know for sure.
