When releasing the clutch out to neutral I get this noise you can here ur better later on the clip. Only does it releasing to neutral no other gear is it normal. Anything to worry about gear box seems fine.

Did they use a concentric slave cylinder on this model ? Or is it just a bearing itself ? Either way I agree on a release bearing...

Thought it might be the sole of your trainer that was split ? ;)

is the clutch release bearing a big job whats the likely cost. how come it only does it in neutral and no other gear, also is it a urgent job or will it wait till the end of next month.

oh and its only when releasing the clutch pedal in neutral

It will be doing it in other gears, but at the same time it will be driving so the sound will be muted, you can hear it in neutral because you are stationary and the engine isn't under load. It's quite a big job unless your good with the spanners, as its a clutch out jobby I'm afraid !!!

It's silent when the cloth is released fully out though it only makes it while it is coming out will it wait till next month

Clutch release bearings can be noisy for a long time before actually failing. Equally a bearing can give up the ghost at any time. For piece of mind take it to a local mechanic or Ford dealer and ask for their opinion, we will all have different views on here.
The advice you get from a garage will be free also !!
