whining noise from sidekick

My sidekick is making a whining noise when in gear and my foot isn't on the clutch. is this the bearing that hangs in the bellhousing? that is where it sounds like it is coming from.

You sure that whining sound isn't your old lady?

Seriously, sounds like a pilot bearing. Or is it the throw out? No, I think it's the pilot that whines when clutch is released, and throw out when depressed.

thanks Tim, that's exactly what I was afraid of... I guess it's time to go under and break a few more bolts!
can I get away with replacing it without completely removing the tranny/xfer case? or do I need to put the whole assembly on the bench?

What, that it is was the old lady? Hate to break it to ya, but it ain't that uncommon. If the whinning is intermittent, you could always whack it a couple of times with a wrench, that usually makes it stop if only temporarily. Usually, once they start whinning all the time, you got to replace the whole unit. I've done it a few times myself.

Other than that, you can replace the clutch stuff with the tranny in, put it's a little tight. A lift helps.
