Got a bit of an issue with my 1995 318ti.
Initially I had an issue with a grinding sound when my clutch was depressed. I was told that it was my thrush bearing. Reading around, it looks like it could be my throw bearing (or are they the same thing with different names). From what I understand is that I need to remove the entire gear box to replace it. Hence may as well replace the clutch and clutch plate.
I kept driving with this for a while and now the car is making a squeaking/squealing sound. Kinda similar to a slipping belt. This sound is not present all the time. The squealing sound is defiantly influenced but the depression of the clutch. The squealing sound is sometimes present at idle and depressing the clutch will dramatically increase the sound. However this sound does not go away when the clutch is not engaged. Sometimes the sound is not present at all. Sometimes it is not present at idle but will make noise when the clutch is depressed. The majority of the time some sort of squealing sound is present.
This this squealing sound due to a worn pilot bearing? Or could it be a transmission bearing? Or is it related to the Throw bearing?
What is involved in fixing this….
