Hi - i just picked up my New Jeep Wrangler 2007 last night, and this morning I noticed a "chirping" sound. I took the vehicle to the Dealer and they said that the clutch release bearing is defective. When I compress the clutch, the sound does disappear. They said to make this repair they will have to remove the transmission, when they replace the part. Does this explanation and approach seem reasonable? Is this an unusual problem? Thanks for your thoughts?
If the noise goes away when the clutch pedal is depressed then it is most likely
a release bearing. Yes, the transmission does have to be removed to replace this
part. This is not unusual except that is is a brand new vehicle, sometimes even
a new part can have defects in them and your dealer will take care of the
problem and stand behind his or her work.
Let us know how it goes. Good Luck!
