when cold (in garage) start up with clutch engaged started low noise but no issue with shifting or reverse. no noise once warmed up. Previously replaced clutch at 25K by VW due to total breakdown at intersection. now 96K miles
clutch transmission noise on 2003 Volkswagen Jetta
If the noise goes away when you press down on the clutch pedal it is typically your input shaft bearing. The life of a clutch is very subjective. I have seen people burn them up in 10k and have seen people have them last over 200k.
