Gromus I've heard the noise for years. It hasn't become worse, and my clutch seems to work fine...

SurfKaster If it sounds like a rolling pin it's normal. Mine has done it for 3 years. Got a little quieter after I did my clutch last year, but it's still there.

Tried this. I can't hear it over the rev of the engine. I guess it doesn't mean it isn't still there, but it's only audible when the engine is idling quietly...

Michael Storm Hmm, Ok. And as far as I can tell I can't hear it at all when driving or even just sitting at idle with it in gear and clutch pressed In. I can only hear it when I am idling in neutral with the clutch NOT pressed in. There is a bit of vibration/play in the stick while in neutral without the clutch pressed as well. Seems like that would be normal though.

brendend Dose the noise change with engine speed?

brendend I ment pilot bearing. Sorry. A throw out would be with the clutch being disengaged (pedal in). Pilot would be when clutch is engaged (pedal out).

Michael Storm I wonder the same. I've heard from some that it's a common occurrence in the TJs and that it's not a big deal; but I am extremely anal about trying to fix the small things all the time, especially when it comes to my baby lol. So here I am trying to figure it out. She also has a small squeak / squeal from what sounds like the pulleys or belt that I need to check into. Ontop of that I have her half lifted right now lol. Ran out of time at the garage this weekend and only got to finish lifting the back half of the vehicle 0.o. Have to finish the front this weekend.

Gromus I've had the same noise, under the exact same conditions, in my 05 long as I've had it (I'm the original and only owner). I haven't worried about it too much. I wonder if I should be...

brendend Without hearing it I agree with you on the throw out bearing

need help with this noise.

My 06 wrangler has a sound coming from what sounds like the transmission/transfer case. I only hear it at idle, in neutral, andd with the clutch released! It goes away immediately if I push my clutch in, or put the vehicle in gear. The noise sounds like a feint rattling/grinding. I'm thinking maybe a throw-out bearing? Let me know what you all think. Thanks in advance!
