Default Got A loud noise on car anyone help

Hi Guys

Put a new clutch in my escort, got a loud noise coming from that area, sounds like a aux belt screaching, press clutch it stops. whilst driving it drives me mad.
Any help would be great.

Thanks Steve

if the dust plate is makin a noise..then you have a problem..cause then the gearbox is not proper tightened to the engine..and thats not good.

it sounds like the release bearing mate.difficult to say when not hearing it ourselves..but..most likely it is the release bearing.

I agree that it could be your release bearing the other thing that it could be is that the release bearing is not located in the arm properly and the arm is rubbing on the input shaft when slack. the later is what it sounds like to me if its a screaching sound.

It´s defo related to the dust-plate and release bearing.
So before you break anything, take it apart and get it fixed
