SOURCE: Clutch Whine on Toyota 4WD Pickup

There is a bearing that presses on the center of the clutch release arms when you put your foot down, it's called the clutch release bearing. It sounds like yours is starting to go bad. There is also a bushing or bearing in the back of the crankshaft that can cause this noise. the the input shaft of the transmission is stabilized in this. These two items are almost always replaced when a clutch job is performed. Unfortunately that is the only way to get at these two bearings. You may be able to drive the vehicle for quite a few more miles. but this is a sign of things to come.

SOURCE: loud clanking noise in gear if the clutch is not engaged

Almost sounds like a throwout bearing problem. Either way, bring the car back and make them fix it. It will be covered under the warranty so dont let them try to convince you otherwise.

SOURCE: My clutch pedal wont spring back once i've

A clutch pedal not springing back is almost always an indication that there is air in the system. Bleeding out a clutch is a tedious endeavor to say the least.
I suggest you open up the bleeder screw & gravity bleed the clutch.(This will take a long time as well!)

Recently developed a whinning when I first start to move

Where is the whining noise actually coming from .. engine/gearbox or elsewhere?
A whining/screeching noise could be a drive belt .. such as the belt that drives the alternator.

On a manual car it could be the clutch bearing making the noise until it warms up. Does the clutch make a noise when you depress the pedal? That's the thrust bearing .. the bearing that operates the clutch.

I don't think you have too much to worry about. If you had engine trouble there would be knocks, rumbles and strange noises at all speeds.

A whining noise is usually associated with something spinning/turning .. such as a pulley/idler on a drive belt or a bearing alternator.

Put your mind at rest - get a mobile mechanic's opinion.

My wife has a Peugot 307 petrol engine. When pulling off from cold, there is a grinding / grating noise. It only occurs when the car is moving and lasts 1 to 2 minutes. Dip the clutch and the noise...

Sticking clutch throw-out bearing arm or linkage/cable, or pedal, so that throw-out bearing is just barely and intermittently touching the throw-out plate of the clutch. Depressing the pedal slightly engages the bearing to the plate causing positive drive of the bearing, quieting the noise. After running a while, the bearing moves sufficient distance to disengage. Next time it happens, with the vehicle stopped, in neutral and with the parking brake set, stick your toes under the clutch pedal and pull it back, see if the noise stops or changes..

I have a 2012 vw GLI manual. When I start the car there's a rattling sound(sound like from the engine). The sound diminish at idle but is still there. When I press down on the clutch it goes away. ...

Hi Roc, If the sound disappeared when the clutch assembly was replaced or attended to, it would seem to be related to something going wrong in that department. Presumably the vehicle is under warranty so the dealer should receive it as a return job. Regards John

I hear a whine when i take my foot off the gas. The faster i go the louder the noise is when i remove my foot.

If you have a turbo that could be it, usually around 40 mph it's noticeable. Driveline, gearbox and differential can also produce a whine. Put it in neutral and coast, listen for any variations. Clutch in, clutch out...after you pinpoint the area it's coming from it will be easier to troubleshoot.
Hope this helps,
