Question about 1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK
1999 Mercedes SLK Kompressor
Bought this car a year ago as I wanted to learn how to drive stick and it has been a really fun car. (kept the Jeep Grand Cherokee for when I need more room)
60,000 miles on it in great shape but over the past few months has started squeaking when the clutch is all the way out....if I press the clutch 10% in it stops instantly. Its not a constant but rather sounds like its tied to a wheel/belt looping type process. It sort of reminds me of a grocery store cart wheel in that it makes the sound with the revolution of something. I am not super into cars so I am looking for a short list of its probably X, Y or Z. I did buy a solid extended warranty but still don't know if this will be covered. I am hoping its not a scary off warrantee repair. It is just annoying enough that it is bothersome if I pull up and its not getting better. :)
Thx for the help.
Based on your post, your problem sounds like a clutch throwout bearing problem. Depending upon what your warranty covers, it may or not be a free repair . Clutches are usually listed as a "wear item" (like brakes). The throwout bearing itself cannot be removed without taking the transmission out of the car. If It is the bearing, the problem will worsen and do damage to the clutch itself.
