Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. What happens when the release bearing goes bad? What are your symptoms and what condition is the bearing in when you remove it?
Are there any odd marks on the clutch when this happens?
It seems to me that your problem is not with the throwout bearing but the input shaft...depending on the extent of the end play, this could be responsible for not allowing the throwout bearing to ride securely and thus put uneven pressure on it and cause it to fail.
