Clutch noise

Have a 2007 159 2.4 SW with just under 80k on the clock which has been running superbly but I'm getting an odd noise from the clutch.

On start up with the clutch pedal pressed, it sounds like a bearing noise being made, (if start up with brake pedal pressed then no noise), once on the move all is fine apart from when using clutch when the noise comes back although it is not as loud once car warmed up.

Could it be as simple as clutch bearings (if it has them!) or am I looking at a new clutch or even, gulp, the dreaded DMF replacement.

Car been running fine, no clutch slip, no extra vibration or engine shunt at all.

Booked into garage next Tuesday but just wondered if anyone had any suggestions.

I had very similar symptoms - it turned out to be the DMF

Sadly the DMF seems to be weaker than the clutchbearing.

Youre up for clutch, bearing and DMF.
