Ford Sierra / Granada Release Bearing Noise

Download Release bearing noise can be audible inside the vehicle, in certain cases on the above vehicles, when the sound absorption damper is omitted from the end of the clutch cable location to the release fork. Insufficient clutch cable tension, due to a broken clutch pedal quadrant tension spring, can cause a rattle or squeal from the release bearing, due to no pre-load being applied to the release bearing, which runs in constant mesh with the diaphragm fingers of the clutch cover. The noise normally disappears when light pressure is applied to the clutch pedal. In both cases the release bearing may not be at fault.
