Does the idle speed appear low? Modern cars don't have the good old fashioned adjustment screws.If the idle is low,a dose of fuel cleaner MAY bring it up.alut:
It's idling just under 1000 rpm as normal and exactly mileage is 040354 this noise seems to appear anytime you return to nuteral and stops when clutch is put in noise is still fairly quite but is there
Change the gearbox oil.
If no better get the input shaft bearing changed.
Sods law the warranty ran out in march, a polite email to Citroen saying the bearing has failed and should last longer than 40,000 miles might get Citroen to change it.
Don't ask dont get....

Just a quick update
Took my car down to the garage that I usually use and they have agreed that it is either the release bearing on the clutch or the input shaft and they recon to wait until it starts making the noise in under load before brining it in to be fix. which shouldn't be anytime soon
Now as I have an auto care warranty with Arnold Clark I have rang them to ask them about repairs and they have said they cant tell me if the input shaft is covered until they can remove the gear box and see the parts. is this genuine or is this some kind of stunt to lure me in and then say the warranty doesn't cover it after dropping my gear box out for a nice labour charge
Is the clutch heavier than before? This happens when the input shaft bearing approaches end stage failure.
