Hi,

About a year ago I noticed a whining noise and thought nothing of it untill now where the noise has increased a bit.

I want to know what it is, the symtoms are:

-When I push the clutch in, the noise goes away
-When the clutch is pushed in, going down a hill keeping the same speed the noise is still gone untill the clutch is back up
-In neutral and rev'ing the car the noise isnt there
-Changes in tone at about 50mph
-Noise is the same in any gear
-just after starting, somtimes I hear a slight spin up sound just after starting, but it's not that loud.


Any ideas? It's bugging me a little

yeah mate id say release bearing or flywheel , id say flywheel more likely tho as release bearing will probably be more of a cluncking.

outside chance it could be a bearing in the gearbox too.


jack it up and get the old stethoscope out :D

I dont see how it would be mate, it's not a DMF

one other symptom is that its not REALLY loud, just there and annoying cos it's getting worse

it cant be, I had the noise appear before the clutch was done, and after the noise is still there 6 months later after the clutch was done. And a clutch kit was fitted

john mate if its coming from the clutch its the bearing wether it was changed or not i had a kit fitted and within 1 week the new slave cylinder seal popped and leaked it was a faulty part i had it redone under the ford dealers warranty as it was a faulty part whole kit had to be redone again either that or the garage didnt do the job they claimed to do and didnt fit a new slave cylinder you dont have a dmf so its the only option im afraid as you said before youve had issues since the clutch was first done

well only thing i could say mate if somebody brought one in and described those problems id check : clutch and release bearing + fly wheel , and then id probably run it thro a few gears with stethoscope on gearbox, and go from there. apart from that it would be trial and error :)

Mates, I dont think its to do with the clutch. The noise was there before and after the clutch change so it cant be the clutch at all.

Anymore ideas?
