Hey, I have a 2005 accord coupe v6 6 speed has made this noise since I purchased it. Here is the video of the noise(turn volume up) http://youtu.be/a3D6D9mX7g8
You can hear the noise in neutral with the clutch out and the noise goes away when you push the clutch in. I first thought it was the throw out bearing squeaking but someone said if the noise goes away when the clutch is pushed in it could be an input shaft bearing. Also, my steering wheel shakes in first and second gear while accelerating(only) and I thought this might be linked to an input shaft bearing as well. Any input is appreciated. Also, does this need immediate action or is just an annoyance? Thanks.

First off, welcome to the DriveAccord forum.

How many miles do you have on your car?

Have you replaced the clutch or axle shafts recently?

I would say that it sounds like it does need immediate attention but answering the questions above will help me out.

My 03 did that, and then it went away. lol. Although its possible the input shaft bearing can cause that noise, I think its more prevalent for the throwout bearing. I would not automatically condemn the input shaft bearing just because the noise goes away with the pedal depressed

As for the vibration under load, bad CV joins/axles can cause this

96k miles on the car. I purchased the car recently, about 3k miles ago and it was making this noise and the steering wheel was shaking when I bought it. The steering wheel shake is only noticeable in first and second gear when accelerating only, not when decelerating or in neutral. I haven't done any clutch or axle work to it myself and I do believe the car is on the original clutch but I don't know about the axles. The axle boots are intact and the cv joints don't click around turns.

I have an 06 V6 6 speed and I had a similar noise at approx. 88,000 miles. It too would stop when pushing in the clutch. I knew that it was the throw-out bearing because I could smell the clutch burning and hear the clutch chatter when idling. Do you have any of these symptoms? I know hearing the chatter may be difficult. I solved the issue by replacing the TOB, clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel.

As for the shaking, I would put it on a hoist and put it in gear and see if the wheels/engine shake. My bet is that it will be either the motor mounts or the axles, especially if they're aftermarket.

Thanks for the response. I haven't noticed any chattering or burning but I'm going to check it out some more tomorrow and I'll post back. If it is the throwout bearing, that's not really something that needs to be fixed immediately, right? ****s to tear apart everything over a bearing especially when the clutch is still perfect.

It's not super urgent but I couldn't stand the noise. I also noticed (obviously) that the clutch engagement between gears at high revs (5000+) consisted of the clutch burning like crazy until it engaged.

You can still have a bad inner joint that will cause vibrations only under load

I replaced the drivers side axle on my 06 due to the same symptoms. The old axle had no visible signs of wear or being defective

As it was said, also check motor mounts
