Default truck repair question

I have a 2002 mazda b3000, manual. There has been a squeeking coming from the transmission area. The noise only happens when the clutch is engaged...almost sounds like a grinding. I have reason to believe its the pressure plates grinding...but dont wanna spend 300 bucks on a new on if thats not it. Any other suggestions??

murph...i just got done taking that off and could find nothing wrong with it. No metal flakes or anything...it moved freely. Unless it makes noise under pressure...i dont think its it.

If it only happens when the clutch is depressed then it is more than likely the bearing. If your down there and have it off, replace it.

With your foot pushing down the clutch in gear the pilot bearing will make noise, same conditions with engine in neutral the noise should be less. The polit bearing is located inside the end of the engine crankshaft.

There is a throw out bearing the pushes on the pressure plate fingers as well that could be a problem.

FACTS spoken....clap SAME thing happened in my Miata. It was the TO bearing. Word to the wise. If you go through pulling a transmission with any amount of miles on it, do as I do....replace pilot bearing, TO bearing, pressure plate and clutch disk...be done once and for all.

if it only does it with the clutch depressed it's more than likely the pilot bearing/bushing. The input shaft of the trans rides inside that bearing and when the clutch is not engaged it squeals from being dried out over the years. It's fairly easy to do other than pulling the trans and clutch.
