Alright, Throwout Bearing Freakin me Out!

Alright, the King Cobra clutch is about... 3 months old.

A month after install, the TO bearing was squeakin on me. I was getting ready to replace it, and than the noise stopped.

OK, that's cool.

Well, a month later, as in a few days ago, it started squeakin again.

Why would it be quiet for a month, and than start up again? Can I just reach in and put some lube on it to shut it up?

You can't put lube in there because it will get on your clutch and that's bad. Ever hear not to get grease on your brakes? Same thing.

You're either going to have to put up with the squeak or change the bearing.

Who put in your clutch? You're supposed to be a bit of grease in a couple places when you replace your throwout bearing. Something I forgot to do when I replaced a clutch on my honda. The sound is starting to drive me nuts!

I replaced it, and I personally greased it...

Which is why I'm wondering if I can throw a little more grease in there.

you can grease in 3 places usually.. the divot where a slave cylinder hits, (cable trans arent really required) the pivot ball in the center of the fork, and the Throw-out bearing contact points in the fork... you dont want huge gobs, but some is ok...
