    Does the sound go with engine speed or road speed?

    Okay doke, just wanted to make sure it wasn't to do with the gearbox wheels or engine.

    If the clutch bites okay and the car drives alright except for this noise, then it sounds like a dry or split release bearing.

    Unfortunatley this means the box has to come of to fix it. Probably worth doing the clutch at the same time.

    BTW, don't take my word as gospel, and get a second opinion on this.

    Hope that helps.

    Would the car still be safe to drive?
