156 2.0TS Veloce 2001 Noises
I'm curious about some of the noises I'm getting.
The first noise I hear is a high pitched, almost like a whistling sound, every time i press the clutch in while in gear. I've been told this may be the clutch release bearings, does this sounds about right? and if so is it anything to worry about until I have to change the clutch? (could this be an indicator that the clutch is on its way out?). This noise goes after I have been driving for a while (say 5 miles or more).
The second noise I get seems to be to do with the steering, this is a relatively low pitched whine, that seems to get louder the more I turn the steering wheel, (i.e. the more aggressively I turn it, not the more times I turn it). This noise seems to be more prominent the colder the weather.
As winter is coming on I wanted to know if I should be concerned with any of these noises so I can sort them out early, therefore any advice would be much appreciated!
