Noise from the clutch

Question : After a recent drive through floodwaters, there is a scraping noise each time the clutch pedal on my Toyota Corolla 1.3 DX is depressed. I have no problems engaging gears, however. I would appreciate your diagnosis of what the problem is and how it can be repaired.

Answer : It is extremely difficult to diagnose noises without being there personally, but there are two possible causes. The first is the clutch bearing. Water could have entered the bearing, destroying the lubricating properties of the bearing grease resulting in noisy running when the bearing is under load. Secondly, the force of water entering the clutch bell housing could have dislodged components such as the clutch- bearing fork. Unfortunately, the only sure way of finding out is to remove the gearbox to see what damage has been done.
