Running 14.000 miles and clutch`s release ball bearing was squeezing ...

When was touched clutch pedal just for a while (not pushing it more than a half of inch) the squeezing was stopped .

So i decided to go for clutch release ball bearing substitute ...

So i ve putted a new one ...
But the noise of squeezing is still go on and i thing it is going worst .

As a quick solution in order to avoid this terrible squeezing is to remove the 2 springs from the clutch pedal in order to move it down a little just as needs in order to stop the noise .

I think this is a temporarily solution but why is this noise appears after fitting new ball bearing ?

Thanks and apologize for my bad english .

Cheers
Haris

as i understand, your clutch release bearing was squealing.
you replaced the bearing with a new one and this did not fix the problem?

My clutch makes some kind of spring compressing sound when I depress.... :huh: car has only 850 miles...

Would this cause any problem later on?

My car has done this since very early on. I've got 22k miles now and nothing has broken yet. I speculate that there is insufficient grease on the shaft on which the release bearing travels. The independent mechanic I talked to agreed. I also damped the squealing noise by packing the back of the clutch fork with grease.
