Squeal in clutch? 95 PSD

Ford dealer replaced clutch 10,000 miles ago. No issues until now.

Issue: Audible squeak/Squeal that changes pitch with RPM, barely audible at 1800 rpm. Drastically change pitch with application of pressure to shift linkage (gear shifter). Sound disappears with very slight application to clutch pedal.

Dealer changed clutch plate, pressure plate, throughout bearing.

I suspect pilot bearing but seeking your input.

Same year truck, same noise, but only when I let clutch out and seems to be louder in reverse. Will stay tuned to this thread for sure.

OK so no hits on this thread. Let me re-explain. I have a squeak/squeal in my clutch. It is audible at any RPM but is drowned out at around 1800 rpm. The pitch of the sound is constant unless I apply slight pressure to the shift linkage (just kinda press on the gear selector - not shifting) The sound completely goes away as soon as I press the clutch pedal. It must be really noticable from the outside as I get a lot of sideways looks when driving by people. Any input would be appreciated.

So it only maks noise when the cutch is engaged (out) and in gear and neutral. When you slowly engage the clutch does it immedately go away as soon as you touch the pedal, or do you have to completely disengage the clutch for the soise to go away?

To me it sounds like a bearing in the trans is letting go. Did you check the fluid?

I would have to agree with the guy above, the fact that you can apply pressure to the shifter while the truck is in neutral and change the noise makes me think that it is not TO bearing related. I would have to guess something internally with the transmission, what exactly I do not know. Change the oil and see if any fragments come out.

It's either the throwout bearing or the input shaft bearing. If it's sensitive to the shifter, it's most likely internal. How is it shifting otherwise? If a synchro came apart, you've got brass pieces in the case.
