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?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
they all disintergrated and making noise
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 8 months ago.

Are there any odd marks on the clutch when this happens?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
the fork and pressure plate are banged up and the clutch seem to have premature wear. also the input shalf seem to have end play.
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 8 months ago.

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.
