    Default I'm scared!

    for some reason today my jeep all the sudden started making a really high pitched noise when i drive it. The only way to make the noise stop is to depress the clutch. i'm freaking out because i was driving it around a bunch of different places today and it never did it. it just started out of no where. I'm freaking out and worried that theres something seriously wrong. any advice or input would be awesome. if it helps at all.. my jeep (including the undercarriage) is completely caked with mud. i'm sure that has nothing to do with it but hey.... ya never know.

    Does your cruise control and air vents work?

    Do you know where the vacuum lines are located? I'm going to take a guess that it's probably a vacuum line. On the drivers side, you'll see a little black plastic tube that comes out of the brake system, it runs forward and T's into another black plastic tube. From here it runs into your intake manifold, and it also snakes it's way along the fire wall to the passenger side of the vehicle. It connects to a black box that's about 6"x2"x3" under your battery tray. It also runs through your firewall on the passenger side and enters the cabin behind the glove box.

    Check all the rubber boots connecting these together. If one's loose, worn, cracked, etc. It needs to be replaced. If you don't see anything wrong with those boots, check the actual lines themselves.

    The throw out bearing is the only thing that I can think that would do that. If it done it all the time even with clutch in it would be different.

    That is a def sign of a bad throw out bearing

    When you say the noise stops when you depress the clutch, is the Jeep still moving forward or are you stopped? If the Jeep is still moving forward it could definitely be the throw out bearing, but if you are stopped then it could be something else. I would start by clean the under carriage. Do they have high pressure self serve car washes over there? Go to one and spend a few Euros and clean it up and see what happens.

    I would expect that the throw out bearing would last longer then this on a 2009. I understand that a bearing can go bad at any time but I am just saying.

    Being a 2009 is it still under warranty?
    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?

    I would hope that the throw out bearing isn't already jacked up on a 2009... I hope they will actually cover that for you over there, cause when my wife's clutch went on on her 1 year old car in Germany we were told that the clutch wasn't covered under warranty... even if it was stateside due to it being a normal wear item... my reply was normal wear is fine, but when the clutch goes out with less than 24K on it... that is not normal wear...
