Suspected throw out bearing failure

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

If you read my other post: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=21510, you would know my clutch is making some funny high pitch noise whenever I let go the clutch pedal too slow and giving it too much gas.

It doesn't happen all the time. It does not seem like it is getting worse or vice versa. It is a strange one.

Anyway, many of you suggested it could be a bad throw out bearing.

If so, is it under warranty? If it is, how could I show it to the mechanic (since it only happens once every few weeks). I am not even sure if I can dulplicate it on the spot.

Well, if it is not that bad. Is it something that would get worse in time and would lead to transmission failure or any sort of major problem?

If not, maybe I can just drive carefully and spare me the headache of bringing my car to the dealer time after time, only to have the mechanic telling me that they can't dulplicate the noise and I would end up paying for nothing.

Please feel free to share your thoughts about this.

Thanks in advance. :renntech:
