Your throwout bearing is likely failing. Your transmission will need to be removed to fix the problem.

    yes, sounds like a throwout bearing. It gets used when you push the clutch pedal down.

Loud squeeling noise when i push in the clutch

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

Clutch makes a squealing noise

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.
