Hey everyone this is my first post on this website! But anyway, I am in need of a little help/knowledge. I just had my throw-out bearing go bad about a month ago so I had it replaced as well as a new heavy duty clutch put in. But since I have gotten the car back, I have noticed a weird sound. It is not the high pitched "screaming" sound of a bad throw-out bearing like before, but more comparable to the sound of a cricket. It is real faint but still noticeable in the car with the windows rolled up but its even more noticeable with the windows rolled down. I only the sound with the clutch is fully engaged. But when I put my foot slightly on the clutch, the noise gets a little bit louder and faster. Then once I push down the clutch maybe about 15% or more, the noise goes away completely. I am not sure if the throw-out bearing was placed wrong or what but any help is appreciated.

Sure sounds like a bad throw out bearing. What bearing did they install? If its aftermarket or from an auto parts store, its probably bad. The only bearing that should be used is a Ford bearing.
