XV_ I have the same problem, I plan on purchasing the clutch kit online, what would be a fair price range for a shop to do the install for me? Dont want to over pay

Jerry Bransford Probably not "immediate" attention but it's not going to get any better. If the noise is not real bad, I'd plan on replacing it within the next month or two.

Thank you. How long can a bad throwout bearing last? Is it something that needs immediate attention?

doolyd What about noise when you press the clutch all the way in? I seem to have some noise but don't really know if it is normal or not. If I press the clutch all the way in I hear it but while driving or in neutral it doesn't make any noise. Shifts perfectly without any noise as well.

bheiser Mine just sounds like there are marbles in mine until I press in the clutch I hear its normal I have an 06

Rwilliamjacob My 04 rubi makes the same noise in neutral i don't think its a big deal because its not doing or making any other weirdness. Plus its prob just the all the internals spinning around because there is no sound deadening.

2000sooners1 bshore if your talking about the grinding sound change the rearend fluid. I changed mine about a month ago and it doesnt make a sound now. I guess the fluid was just getting to thinned out when the rearend warmed up.

bshore I am hearing the same noice in the 2011 Wrangler Unlimited.. Should I be worried?
02-23-2011 07:31 AM
2000sooners1 It doesn't make any noise while having any speed only when you first take off while turning. Honestly i'm not a full fledged mechanic but i've work on all my vehicles for years, and this has me lost. I't sounds like it is something in the rearend grinding, but only when you first take off from a stop.

agreed x2

Would the noise be so loud that you can hear the scraping noise over the engine & road noise? Would it increase in in pitch with acceleration & decrease with deceleration and would it still make a faint noise when you are rolling slow with the clutch pressed?

TexasT X2 on normal. That's why I was curious what year it is. I had a quiet ax15 that I replaced with a new nv3550 and was surprised how much "normal" noise it makes in Neutral.
02-12-2011 02:21 PM
2000sooners1 I thought it might be normal, but wasn't sure. If it was louder, or if it gets hard to shift, or clutch starts getting slack then i will be worried..

MUDDY87 I am having the same problem with my 06 rubicon unlimited. My clutch started having that same noise. But recently. It never made noise in the beginning.
02-12-2011 01:52 PM
creeperjeep Throw out bearing, if you replace it go ahead with a full clutch kit. Could be.It may never cause you a problem from what I hear.
02-12-2011 12:55 PM
2000sooners1 its did it since i've had it its not very loud and it only makes any noise in neutral. The clutch has no play and still goes in all gears smoothly with no grindage. It only has 40000 highway miles on it. Just now was going to start offroad play...
02-11-2011 09:33 PM
TexasT What year jeep and has this always done it or just started?
02-11-2011 09:10 PM
bc3_Jeep Could be broken/stressed springs on clutch disc, warped clutch plate, weak pressure plate

Could be Tranny too......mine was making a hell of a noise before it BLEW UP.......LOL

clutch noise!

While i idle in neutral I think its my clutch, but not sure makes a scraping noise. If you push the clutch in the noise stops. Does anyone know what this could be while its still under waranty lol
