hmm. thats tricky. try and, while not touching the clutch pedal, lightly push the shifter towards a gear and see if that makes it go away as well. then id say its a tranny issue of some sort. but from what you say, doesnt seem like a pilot bearing or TOB. hopefully someone else will have another idea for you.

yeah, wierd...

I'm not a tranny expert, but if it were a bad TOB or Pilot bearing there wouldn't be a noise until the clutch pedal was depressed, correct?

Try adjusting the clutch, the throwout bearing may be riding on the pressure plate all the time, it should be 1/8-1/4 inch away when the pedal is released. Otherwise it could be the pilot bearing, that will often make a noise that stops when the pedal is pushed in.

i would typically agree, except that the TOB makes noise when the clutch pedal is touched, not make the noise go away when you touch it. and when its bad, it can have a cu*t hair fall on it and ittl make noise.

Its your TOB (Throw out Bearing) if it squeeks when the clutch is not in, then when the clutch goes in, its the TOB.

Our 03' Cobra's went out a few months ago. Did the EXACT same thing.
