Default Clutch Graunching Noise

Gentlemen,

I have a 91 C4 with a dry sounding graunching noise whenever the clutch is depressed. Whatever is causing the noise, sends a vibration that can be felt through the pedal. The gears seem to engage ok. Also when decelerating hard using the gears, I get a funny whine as I release the clutch going from 4th to 3rd. The clutch is fairly heavy, but has only done around 15000 miles in 8 years.

Any ideas guys? I know a new clutch is the obvious answer but is there anything else it could be?

Cheers,

TD

The throw out bearing is transfering the pedal movement over to the pressureplate.
It is as easy to change as the whole clutch assembly, ie you have to split the gearbox and the engine.
