Help! Droning sound, vibration in clutch at idle, and steering wheel
 
Hi guys, hoping someone can help me with this - started a few days ago. Its a droning noise which changes pitch in step with the rpm of the engine. At idle I can feel a slight vibration through the clutch pedal, and (slightly weaker) through the brake pedal as well. Also, when I turn the wheel, the sound increases in volume and I can feel a slight vibration through the wheel as well. There is no vibration in the wheel or pedals once the car is moving, but the droning sound continues.

No warning lights on the dash anywhere, and the car seems to be driving fine - any ideas? I'm hoping its not anything serious, but unless someone tells me different, I'll take it in in a couple weeks and get it checked out.

Thanks all

im no expert but im tempted to say its the clutch throwout bearing but u said u can feel it thru the wheel too so it could be the power steering pump..

Feeling vibration in the clutch pedal, I'd guess it's T/O bearing or worn disk. As for the vibrating steering wheel, probably your P/S belt or pulley or bad tie rods.
