Ford Fiesta 1.4 petrol - Clutch squeal - Mark_Space

Hi,

I have an 06 1.4 petrol Zetec Fiesta with 35K miles. Occasionally if you let the clutch up a bit roughly while under load (like a poor gear change when in a hurry or pulling away very quickly), you get a quick squeal from somewhere under the bonnet as the clutch engages. It only ever happens when using the clutch so I guess it is clutch related. It's not from the pedal, but is from somewhere under the front of the car. The clutch is quiet at all other times, including at idle and when you drive it properly. Any ideas what's wrong?

Thanks,

MarkSpace.

Could be be the clutch plate itself or the thrust bearing, either means taking the gearbox out so I would just put up with it until something more serious happens.
