screeching/cricket sound

Postby uthi » Wed May 15, 2013 10:08 pm

my car makes this cricket like sound whenever i start the car, put it in reverse and switch on the headlights. if i change gear to drive the sounds stops. problem is random and my mechanics haven't been able to figure the problem. i will really appreciate any help in fixing this.

Release bearing/pilot bearing are most common to mske the chirping noise worse case could be input shaft bearing

All transmission related

Another possible is the air conditioning actuator, think mines on its way out at the moment.
