My car has been making a noise that sounds like the throw out bearing is bad. But I have changed the throw out bearing, the clutch, the clutch plate thing and the fly wheel. The noise is still there, I was told maybe its the pilot bushing or the IPS bearing. I just dont know where to go from here. I dont wana have to change both things if its not needed.
Do you
have the same problem?

Your going to have to inspect the pilot bushing and see if you can feel play in the input shaft or hear noises while turning it. So you hear the noise when you let the clutch out in neutral?

I would say most likely a bad input shaft bearing.

Ok and how easy is that to fix? And how expensive? I know you gta remove the axels and struts to drop the tranny down but after that how easy is it to get to?

You have to remove the transmission then remove the clutch housing.I have done a Honda civic and saturn ones not sure ho hard that one is. For you it maybe hard if you have never taken a transmission apart. May you can watch someone on you tube take one apart.

Well I wont b doin it cause being tht im a girl it would b a little hard for me since I dont know a whole lot about that. I know how to change, y breaks and oil and stuff and know how axels and stuff go on but other than that my boyfriend does all the work, he can take a car apart and put it back together like its nothing. He just doesnt have time to do my car right now. So im tryin to sell it. The guy tht wants to buy it doesnt know much about cars so were tryn to figure out whats wrong so he can buy it and fix it, so thank you so much for your answer. Hopefully thats whats wrong and it can all be done with.
