Ok so I have been chatting with you guys for a day or so and I have replaced the throwout bearing, inspected the input shaft that sticks out. The throwout and pilot bearing were bad so I replaced them. My car is still making a grinding noise when clutch is out but stops when clutch is in. I noticed lastnight that I had it in 1st gear and the clutch pushed in and I was rolling and the noise was still there even though the clutch is in but when I stop and hold clutch in it is quiet what could this be?

If it completely locks up it could damage the engine.

Last transmission I had at work that seized up at speed, exploded the clutch and shrapnel smashed the bell housing and dented the car floor, there is a fair bit for force involved here.
