Throw-out bearing squealing
Yaaay, my clutch is going out.
6400 miles, 4 months, zero track time, just daily driving. Pedal has had a funny feel since I got the car, and now the bearing is squealing loud and clear when I press on the pedal. Even when just driving with my foot off the pedal I can hear it.
When I press slowly on the pedal, I can feel "roughness" as the bearing is trying to slide on the input shaft. My guess is all the friction dust that has worn off the disc has dried out the bearing, hence the squeal. Anyone else whose clutch went out had this?
