With a few thousand miles maximum on my car since new clutch, pressure plate and throwout bearing (Borg and Beck), I started to hear a funny sound when letting out the clutch.
I just had the car up on a hoist at a well respected British car repair shop and the graphite part of the throwout bearing is loose. I could rotate it with a long screwdriver put through the bell housing access hole.
Other than the intermittent noise, the clutch works fine with no juddering.
The local shop says that the noise is probably the most noise it will make and that it could last up to 30,000 miles. On the other hand, they said the graphite could fragment one day which means metal on metal and the clutch would have to be redone.
I ask your thoughts
