Default possible clutch issue

Hi guys/girls hope you can help. Recently while pressing my clutch pedal to drop gears I've noticed what sounds like air leaking from somewhere and last night when setting off to work I applied clutch then put car into gear and noticed the car trying to move back slightly (hand brake was on). Any ideas or help is appreciated. Thanks mike

Have you checked the brake reservoir oil as that is where clutch gets its supply?

To be honest your description is so vague its hard to understand what you mean i have a couple of ideas what it could be but really need a better description of the symptom

Does it do it every time you press the clutch and is it coming from the pedal area or is it more a result of pressing the clutch ?

Does it do it if you have the engine off and press the clutch does it do it if engine is running but you are not moving IE just sitting in car pressing it can you hear it every time

Fluid is full. It only happens when engine is running and I apply pressure to clutch pedal. it only seems to happen pulling away and stopping in 1st n 2nd gears all seems well when I've got going. When it happens I feel a little vibration and if I have my window down, when breaking in a built up area I can hear what sounds like air escaping coming from under the car when clutch is applied. Sorry if this makes no sense but I've only been driving a year and am clueless when it comes to things like this

I recon it might be your release bearing starting to fail if it is your going to need a new clutch im afraid

So there is no 'air leaking' noise with your foot completely off the clutch pedal?

If you start putting gentle pressure on the pedal, does the 'air leaking' noise start immediately?

If so, I'm with reliable in that your release bearing is failing. If it fails completely, it will most likely destroy the pressure plate so you need to attend to it before you end up with major damage inside the bellhousing.

No leak noise when off pedal, and I've only noticed noise when pedal is pressed to the floor

Open the bonnet and have a listen (with the engine running) while someone pushes the clutch pedal down. Operating the clutch won't make any difference if all is well, if it does make a noise then you need a clutch.
You will need to support the car to get underneath it, and a means to support the engine as the n/s mounting and rear stabiliser have to be disconnected. You will also need torx sockets as well as decent metric spanners & sockets, and set aside a day to get it done. Not a job for a handyman, but within the scope of most diy mechanics.
Whoever does the job don't cheap out on the clutch, LUK and Valeo are well respected brands on this forum, a cheaper alternative might be more expensive in the long run.
