Need a lil help here

So i noticed recently that there is a strange chirping sound when the clutch is not depressed what could it be? I also have noticed a high pitched squeeking sound coming from the front end when i start moving after it has been parked for a while, any ideas? I have a 2004 V6 with 45K.

i've read everywhere that the chirping when clutch is not depressed is probably your throwout bearing or the rod it resides on going bad... the squeeking sound from the front end is probably where your springs, lca, frame, or something has settled, or your brakes could be sticking. im sure someone with way more knowledge than me can chime in on this, but i figured I would bump it nonetheless.

its the throwout bearing. you can take up some slack in the clutch petal just make sure you go into neutral fully and have a half inch of petal before the clutch starts to slip. This may help for a while but it will eventually need replacment. its a very cheap part thats a pain to get to. On t5 transmissions its much easier though vs a T45. while you are replacing it is a very good idea to replace the entire clutch and pilot bearing (and bearing retainer sleeve that the throwout slides on)
