Re: loud squealing noise when clutch pedal is depressed
Probably the release bearing is worn-out.
In my opinion, you should look for good motor shop around your area.
Let them replace the release bearing, clutchlining assembly, and the pressure plate assembly.
Labor cost for that job is around 500.00 to 800.00 pesos.
I don't know the prices of the parts now.

Bearing noises in a clutch system are easily distinguished by running a few simple tests. Start the engine and leave the transmission in neutral. If a transmission makes noise when it is in neutral it is often a worn input shaft bearing. Now depress the pedal until the clutch just engages. This is the point where the release bearing is just contacting the pressure plate fingers. If you begin to hear a squealing sound this is likely a worn release bearing. If a whirling noise is present when the clutch pedal is fully depressed it is probably the pilot bearing.
Without hearing the squeal, I presume its coming from under the bonnet and only when the clutch is pushed in if so, I would be fairly certain that it is the clutch thrust bearing. To check start the engine, depress the clutch so that the squeal is present. Then whilst it is squealing gently rev the engine, if the squeal varies at at then I would be 99% certain that it is the cause. Unfortunately the only fix for that is replacement of the clutch. hope this helps
I hope when the first clutch was replaced the throw out bearing was replaced. It sounds like you are either riding the clutch (foot resting on clutch pedal and partially depressing the clutch during normal driving) or the adjustment is incorrect. The throwout bearing should not contact the pressure plate unless the clutch pedal is depressed when adjusted correctly. The constant contact is what wears the bearing out prematurely.
The throw out bearing is going oout. The reason you hear the squeal when you push in the clutch is that is when the throw out bearing spins up. Rest of the time it does not spin.It is irratating, You should replace the entire clutch assembly when you replace the throw out bearing. Hope this helps, rate me high.
