When starting the car on neutral (pedal not pressed) there is no noise, but if I put it into gear, and then back to neutral the noise is heard. Nothing crunchy - just a hissing sound. Usually, after driving a bit the noise goes away. The car has done less than 30000 miles.
My issue looks and sounds identical to the one in this video:

It looks like an easy fix. Do we have access to the clutch fork on our cars or would a mechanic need to disassemble the whole transmission on order to access it?

P.S I used to pressure wash my car, could it be the reason for this noise? Maybe I removed some grease by mistake, or is it completely unrelated?

Thanks!

If you check out some gearboxes for sale on eBay for our cars, you will see how they are put together.
This video relates to a totally different system. You could try lubricating the clutch cable or the pedals.
Or the operating fork. But without a full strip down you can’t get to it.

Well then, that's bad news.. It's more like a whistle, rather than noise.
Is it possible that a transmission oil drain will fix the issue? Maybe use a thicker oil?
As far as I know the transmission oil has never been replaced.
Thanks for taking the time to answer,
