Transmission noise

Hello all. I have an 01 Frontier SE and recently have been hearing a grinding/rubbing noise that seems to be coming from the tranny when I depress the clutch pedal. I did a search, but I didn't really find anything that sounds like the problem I am having.

Could it be the throwout bearing? Or is the tranny shot?

Thanks in advance!

Sure has the symptoms of a throw out bearing. If you have a hydraulic clutch, check the fluid before you do anything. The clutch master cyl is on the firewall. Use DOT 3 brake fluid, and fill to level. Hope thats all that ails ya.

Update to symptoms. The noise only happens when I downshift and hold the clutch pedal in - i.e. when I go from 3rd to second and drift to a stop sign. Once the RPMs get to a certain point (low) the noise is heard. Thanks so far...

Had noise from throw out bearing on my 99 se v6 4x4 kc when I let clutch out after downshifting. Replaced clutch and all other components, works great, no noise. If you do it yourself make sure to remove crank position sensor before pulling trany. Throw out bearing had some lateral play in it, but wouldn't consider it more than an excruciatingly, painfully, aggrevating annoyance. Original clutch disc after 145k of constant abuse (to put it lightly) still had plenty of friction material left.

I have the exact same noise in my 2000 V6 4x4 frontier. The trans was rebuilt about a year ago, with new clutch and components. It didn't make this noise until just recently. Its odd, but I don't think its doing any harm. I guess if it is, I'll find out!
