Default question about throw out bearing

how can you tell if the throwout bearing is worn....my car is very hard to get into gear sometimes and it also grinds. Today is started making a metal on metal contact sound and someone told me that my throwout bearing is bad......is that true

The throw out bearing for most honda's make a burning, hissing sound when worn. It's hard to explain... You should be able to hear it during idle... I would like to see what others have to say...

When in doubt, bleed your clutch fluid system. Use ATF Typ Blue, that stuff rocks. THe NSX guys live by it!

Does it go away when you engage the clutch?

Yea sit somewhere with your car on in neutral, then push the clutch in. If the sound stops it is your throwout bearing...

Default Re: question about throw out bearing (bumpincivic20)

I have that same problem too, the hissing when hte clutch is not engaged, but when i engage it, it stops. its not a loud hissing, but when the air and music are turned off i can hear it. i'm wondering what I should do... how much is a new throwout bearing? or should i get a new clutch kit, i found an OEM one on ebay for like 135 shipped... i dont think the clutch has ever been replaced in 7 years, so it's probably pretty worn anyway...

I would just pick up a new set of bearings, pilot/release.

But if they sounds comes and goes as the clutch is engaged and disengaged its your bearings.

Yes its pretty easy to install. Just yank out the old one and stick in the new one. Make sure to put grease on it. Use this to do it: http://www.c-speedracing.com/h...2.php

I am not sure what would happen, I have never went that far. I am assuming the bearing will fall apart and fail to do its job, causing metal to metal wear. Leading to god only knows what... cause I dont know what lol

Installation is easy, drop the tranny put the new bearings in place of the old ones, with some assembly lube.

I installed a clutch my self last month. I am also a newbie. Just get a friend and try it. Take your time, its a good learning process. Use the instructions i have you. You might as well replace the clutch also. I recommend the Exedy Organic clutch. I got mine from http://www.clutchcityonline.com

Yeah I also have the same problem on my 00 civic SI B16. I can hear that noise coming out of my engine but as soon as I even touch the clutch...just a lil it goes away. Any suggestions what the best throwout bearing would be? I would just replace it with my clutch...ACT and the flywheel. If anybody has a good link for the throwout bearings that would be nice.
