2001 Ford Fiesta clutch making noise

Hi Scotty, my clutch has started making a noise when it is released.

Hi Scotty. I have a 2001 Ford Fiesta 1.25 with a 5spd manual, 78k miles, and recently it's started making a noise when the clutch is released. When the car is started, if you release the clutch it starts making a quiet grinding noise that can be heard over the engine. This happens regardless of gear, including neutral and reverse. Could it be the throwout bearing needs replacing? Should i be worried about it or just live with it?

time for a new clutch, either change all the clutch parts, or wait until it breaks entirely then do that

Okay, thanks for the repsonse
