Clutch whistles when switching gears


My 95, 2.0 Prelude has a squeaky clutch. When sliding clutch during gear change then sometimes there is a whistling sound. It doesn't happen when clutch is fully engaged nor if it is fully realeased. It whistles somewhere in between.

Also it doesn't happen when standing still and starting to drive. Only hearing it when changing gear while driving (especially on low speed).

It doesn't seem to affect clutch performance but dusturbs my ear nevertheless Any ideas what causes this?

Re: Clutch whistles when switching gears

sounds to me like u could have a bad throwout bearing if u push clutch to floor noise shold stop and when relased it should have a whine or a constant spinning sound if so your throwout bearing needs replaced.
