Default 1997 Civic DX Clutch Sound?

So I just bought a 1997 Civic Coupe DX, when I start it in the morning and release the clutch it makes a buzzing sound and goes away once the car warms up, while its cold and I press the clutch in the sound goes away? I talked to a mechanic and he said the clutch might need to be replaced soon, I just want to make sure that's correct. Also when I first bought it I cleaned it out and found a paper from a shop that he took it to and the write-up side the clutch master cylinder had no fluid, it said to fill and bleed. How do I make sure the previous owner did that?

Sounds like a failing input shaft bearing. See:


Notice how replacing the throwout bearing (part of a standard clutch job) didn't fix the noise. Control-f and search for "input shaft bearing" in the comments section and note all of the comments explaining the cause of the noise as due to the input shaft bearing.

Yes this sounds like the very common input shaft bearing problem. How many miles? The input shaft bearing is going to go at around 150,000 miles. Replace it, and the rest of the transmission can last a long time.

So I just watched the video, should I replace all the things he did and the input shaft bearing? Also, the input shaft was that tube-like thing sticking out of the inside of the transmission housing right?
