Is This Noise The Clutch Release Bearing?

Makes sense. Thank you for the update. Quite irritating for me as it's engine out yet again (Spyder did my clutch and all new parts only a couple of thousand miles ago).

Thanks again.

Best,
Adi

Yes - irritating to the tune of £1000 of labour!

There are some duff bearings on the market I was told - perhaps you were unlucky? Worth asking for a goodwill gesture from Spyder?

It's fine, I have a few other jobs on the list which will be done at the same time for which I need the gearbox out anyhow. In for a penny...

Sadly I didn't have the best experience with Spyder the last couple of times, so I feel there isn't much goodwill going around.
