Hey guys,
I've had my most recent 91T for about 6 months now. Ever since I got it, when the engine is running and I put the clutch in (anywhere from just putting pressure on the pedel, to all the way to the floor), I get this whiney sound that's engine RPM related. It honestly sounds exactly like when you crank the wheel to the lock and you hear the power steering sound.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Steve

sounds like your throwout bearing is bad. just so i have this straight, it happens when the clutch is still fully engaged, correct?

When the clutch pedel is anywhere from slightly depressed, to pressed to the floor.

To replace the throw out bearing, that's a full clutch job, correct?

Thanks guys,
Steve

you will need to separate the tranny from the engine, to pull the throwout bearing off the clutch fork, and replace it. but it might be wise to pull your pressure plate off and check everything out. if you are gonna be in there might as well do an inspection.
