I have a 2003 Mustang 3.8L V6 that does a really loud squeal when the clutch is pushed in, however when the clutch is all the way out it doesn't make any noise. As well it only happens when I'm in lower gears like 1 or 2 and it never happens when I'm in the higher gears. The car only has 69k miles on it and i'm pretty new to fixing cars so I have no idea what it could be, maybe the throw out bearing?

Here's a video of it:

Hi, It sounds like it may be a typical throwout bearing issue, but may be something else.
The below will aid in determining the cause:
1) Car running, leave in Neutral, push the clutch in & hold, rev to RPM for a few seconds, release. Three times total. 1,000, 2,000, 3,000 RPM’s. Any noise occur?
2) Drive the Car normal, but on takeoff once or twice try revving it a bit higher than normal in 1st gear but shift into 3rd instead of 2nd. Noise occur?
3) Driving the car along a stretch, 4th or 5th Gear, when you need to stop at a light/sign, engine brake by downshifting normally through 3rd, 2nd, 1st grear(s). Noises?
4) Car running, brake engaged, push the clutch in & shift into 1st for a few seconds, then shift into Neutral for 5 seconds, then into reverse. Any noise(s) occur?
Good luck!
