HELP,grinding metal sound

Hello,
I have a 2008 wrangler X, 6cyc.
Then I press down the clutch and the brake at the same time I hear metal grinding and I can feel pulsing. This is the only time I hear it. HELP. Thank you

The "Pulsing" is a warped or loose Brake Rotor....Check it to be sure it's tite first. It may need to to resurfaced or replaced.
The "Grinding" when the clutch is depressed is caused by a worn out Throw out bearing.

Good luck...... "BH"

The grinding could also be the brake pads are worn out, especially if you are only hearing it when the you apply the brakes.
