Clutch making bad noises

Hey everyone

when ever i engage the clutch my car begins to make a metal grinding sound (similar to when driving with the handbrake on). Anyone had this issue? im guess the thrust bearing is on the way out?

any help will be appreciated before i get someone to tear the car apart.

thanks

Mike

sorry dude your car is obviously rooted and you'll need someone who knows what they are doing to have a look at it, go independant as BMW factory places are full of wankers, all you'll get from a forum is opinion

Sounds like a bad bearing to me. Often times people drive thru deep standing water on the road way. This washed away the grease from the clutch bearing and in no time its making bad noises. Only a replacement will do. You might as well replace the entire clutch system and rear crankshaft seal while your in there. I hope your dual mass flywheel is ok. The DMFW is a pricey part.

I think he's talking about the one on the fork. In which case it's loudest when you're holding the clutch in

Yes, the bearing on the clutch fork.

Or more commonly known as the thrust bearing.
