    The clutch release bearing doesnt really have any effect on the performance of the clutch and its unlikely to have any effect unless its been doing it for years. I used to have a golf with a noisy clutch release bearing and it went on and on and on!

    The most simple test is to sit the car at idle in nuetral with the bonnet up and get an assistant to depress the clutch and listen under the bonnet to see if the noise stops, and starts again when the clutch is released.
