clutch whine?

Noticed today that the car started to make a whining noise when sitting at the lights. I pressed the clutch pedal and it stopped, depressed and it started again. After leaving it for a few minutes it seemed to clear iself, and came back again later.

Is this typical clutch or perhaps gearbox?

Is it an engine out job to change the clutch on the impreza?

Not having much luck with my newly acquired scooby...

Gearbox out to change clutch...... Sounds like it might be the thrust bearing...

yeh, i thought it might be the thrust bearing because you press the clutch pedal and it disappears, but it is a very loud whine. Changing gears is also becoming difficult, especially when engine hot.

not much slipping, although the clutch burns quite easily with 4 persons in the car and a quick start.

Any idea of the typical labour charge for a clutch replacement, assuming I buy my own uprated item?
