Squeak/ squeal at 1500rpms?

Im starting to notice a weird squeak, squeal that sounds like it is coming from the front end of my jeep.
If i start it up and let it idle its fine. Once i start to move it starts and almost sounds like a belt issue would. I find it weird because when i press the clutch to shift, the noise dissapears but returns when i let the clutch out. The more gas i give her the more she squeals. Its not a loud crazy squeal but just enough to wonder whats going on.
If it helps i just did a complete clutch kit so i dont think it would be the throwout bearing.
Any input?

Mine just started to do the same thing, I'm thinking it is one of the bearings in the drives but I'm not for sure.

Found out what mine was. It ended up being the idle bearing by the AC going out.

If it is repeatable when depressing the clutch, then it does sound like a throw out bearing even though you state it was replaced. When you did the clutch work, did you buy OEM or very high quality parts? You can try temporarily removing you belt and see if the noise is still present, this would at least rule out all of the belt driven accessories and the belt itself.

Well, that is what I was getting to. If it was repeatable when the clutch was depressed/cycled. If Increased pressure on the throw out bearing causes the change in noise level, then the throw out bearing is highly suspect, regardless of it's age. Obviously, I hope this is not your case. But for a free and relatively easy check, remove you belt and start her up. If the noise is still present and still only changes with clutch, then what else could it be? I have experienced bad distributer shaft bushing noise before, but it is not associated with clutch use. If the noise is gone with the belt removed, then awesome, a much easier fix lies in your future.
