I'm driving a 1999 Legacy TS-R and It's done a fair few miles. I only bought it a few months ago, but the previous owner was a freind of mine and had it for 5 years taking great care if it.
I've just started noticing a slight grinding/whining noise as I change down, just as I release the clutch pedal, particularly into 2nd gear.
It's never down this before, and there is no similar sound as I'm accelerating or changing up.
From what I've been reading it might be any number of things. I'm worried because I've been depending on engine braking a lot more recently after problems with the brakes.
Does anyone have any idea what it might be, or whether I can improve the way I use the clutch to mitigate the problem?
Thanks in advance!
