It sound like a noisy shaft bearing in the gearbox mate. If the noise goes when the clutch is pressed the gearbox is dis-engaged from the engine so is not turning hence the noise going with the clutch pressed. :thumbsup

A straight 318 (non 'is) will most likely be an M40 engine on that year, m43 after 1993. Which is only an 8v. M42 is a 16v.
