New driver here. I drive ford fiesta 2019, petrol, car is around half year old, 5k km.
Sometimes when I need to maneuver slowly in 1st gear or reverse (for example in a parking lot or a very slowly moving traffic jam), and I try to set my clutch to a biting point, it starts doing this weird noise (I think around 440 Hz). This does not happen always, but sometimes, could be once per week. Might be also connected with the wet or cold weather. The sound is not loud, but distinguishible, and I feel some small vibrations through clutch pedal, which I do not feel otherwise.
When this happens, the car is not moving - I have to press clutch down more, and press like half of the gas pedal for it to start moving, still slowly. This is especially visible when in reverse - I can't get enough speed and the car is moving like 1 cm per sec max.
As I said I am a new driver and I am now worried that I was using my clutch incorrectly and now have damaged it.
Before I often did such maneuvering with no gas and by keeping my clutch on a biting point, also controlling the speed with break, though I'm trying not to do that too often and only when I need slower speeds.
