I noticed an odd noise from the bus transmission this morning. It sounds like a bearing going bad. I can hear it when the bus is idling in neutral (it's a manual) but if I push the clutch in (without touching the shifter) the noise goes away. Any thoughts/guesses.

Sounds like the throwout beaaring?

I really didn't want to type that.

I say ignore it and maybe it will just go away.....
