I just replaced my entire clutch, pressure plate and release bearing because I had a noise coming from the transmission. After I replaced all this the noise is still there. The noise happens when the car is in neutral with the car on obviously but when I push in the clutch it goes away. It also makes noise when in gear with the clutch engaged(pedal up) but as soon as I push in the clutch to shift it goes away until I bring the pedal back up. Now I know the release beaing is supposed to only make noise when you push the clutch pedal down and is supposed to go away when you let go of the clutch but I keep hearing from people that that its the throw out bearing which would be the opposite of what actually is happening. Keep in mind I had an 05 Civic as well and had the same exact noise and I replaced the release bearing and the pilot bearing and the noise went away which tells me it wasnt the Input Shaft Bearing. Please help. Im so confused as to when each bearing makes noise. I already put the transmission back on and now I'm mad that I might have to take it all out again.
have the same problem?
