HouseCallAuto 2/18/2011The clutch release bearing is noisy. If you are going to replace it to make the noise go away, you will at the same time replace the clutch disc and clutch cover and resurface the flywheel and replace the pilot bearing / bushing. The transmission has to be removed to replace the release bearing.
