How do I know if I have a faulty throwout bearing and need a clutch kit replacement?
Hi, the bearing begins spinning as soon as you begin pressing on the clutch pedal so there would be a grinding noise the whole time you are applying pressure to the pedal. It shouldn’t affect driveability too much, just create an annoying noise as you are driving. If this is not what you are experiencing, have a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the car and further the diagnosis.
