Whirring Noise From Clutch When In Neutral

06 January 2013 - 02:36 PM

My wife's 2009 Mk7 1.25 Zetec has starting making a whirring noise when in neutral. It has only done 35,000 and serviced regularly. If you press the clutch down the noise stops. It is more noticeable when the car is cold. I checked the gearbox oil this weekend and topped up with about 1/2 litre but this has made no difference. From reading other posts, some say it’s either clutch thrust bearing or gearbox input shaft.

Any help would be appreciated.
