Belt squeal sound while shifting

I have a manual transmission. There was a slight noise that went away if I just touched my foot to the clutch. But today, an awful and very loud squeal, like a belt gone bad, started...but only when I press it release my clutch and at idle. It is not making a whining or clicking...its a very loud squeal sound. From research, it seems like many point to TOB and maybe pilot bearing. How to I know for sure (vs a belt) and on a limited budget, can I replace just these (although many say replace with clutch kit while you're in there)?

It's deffinately the TOB. But think about it... what difference to the belt or engine does pushing the clutch in make? Very, very little. And the fact that it would make noise in neutral, until you lightly touched the clutch tells me the TOB was going bad even then. I agree, if you're going to go through all the trouble to drop the trans to replace the TOB, might as well do the whole clutch kit. Yeah, more money, but you'll onely have to do it once and get a whole lot more miles out of it.

Best of luck!

How many miles on clutch and are you having any other problems that could be clutch related would determine whether i would replace clutch.
