I have been told by the mechanic at the dealer that a 'faulty intake bearing" isnt anything to worry about.
I was told by my mechanic that I need it fixed.
I bought the car from a dealer. They just replaced the clutch ( but I have no proof that they actually DID replace it.) The sound has not gone away. And well. For $6K I want a car that is not going to throw a rod on me!
Thoughts? How bad is a faulty intake bearing?

That is an input bearing. Noisy when the clutch is out without the car moving.

Yes, it does need to be replaced before metal shavings ruin the rest of the trans
