Unhappy

1) everytime my car is in neutral, the front end makes this weird helicopter noise (like "tocko, tocko, tocko", mild but really quick). But when i press the clutch the noise fades. Yeah, i know is gotta be the clutch, but what exactly? clutch disk? guibo disk? tranny?

has anybody experience this noise?

Oh... and
2) also i changed my 2 belts 'cause they were worn an now i have another annoying noise, like a chirping noise, but does it only in idle, i guess it's one of the pulleys. would it be ok if i put some WD-40 around the pulleys (obviously NOT on the belts) as a temporary fix?

thanx for any suggestions

Check your center bearing.

Slave cylinder will sing when you put the clutch in.
I would check the center bearing, had a similar thing like that.

is the center bearing located on the pedal or inside the clutch housing?
