Moaning sound when releasing clutch
« April 24, 2020, 09:24:09 »
Recently I have started to hear a faint moaning sound when releasing the clutch after changing gears. It happens only in the phase where I am still taking my foot off the pedal, then it goes away. Sound is so faint I dont think I can get it recorded unless I abuse the clutch.
So far car has done 68000 kms and rides fine and have no problems changing gears, fuel economy is the same as before.

Am I approaching an expensive repair / new clutch? Or any tips to keep rolling as long as possible?

could that be the release bearing, I had that for years with my 2010 i30 and just learned to live with it. 

More experience chaps might have a better idea than me, so wait and see what others say  :goodjob: :goodjob:

Thats same from me too.

Low kms = heaps of life left in the clutch.

Even if bearing becomes unbearable ( get it  :rolleyes: :twisted:) its not an expensive item to replace....at an independent workshop,
