You will have to drop the transmission. Inspect the pressure plate for excessive wear and stretched springs when you remove it. Replace your throwout bearing at the same time, they are usually worn out by the time you need a clutch.
ok new clutch. did you replace the throw out bearing? what about the pilot bearing,replace that too?these are the main squealers in clutches. if you push in on the clutch w/engine running does the squeal stop?[if so i suspect throw out bearing] if it squeals either w/clutch in or out,i suspect pilot bearing. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com if you need further assistance,please repost your question to fixya.com
sound's like the throw out bearing wen't this it what move's the clutch away from the flywheel when u push in the clutch peday if this fai's the tranny could be fine but u will have to remove the tanny to replace the throw out bearing and clutch asembaly
You need to remove the transmission (and transfer case if its 4 wheel or all wheel drive) to access the clutch assembly. Be prepared to replace the clutch disk, pressure plate, thrust bearing, throwout bearing, and in your case since its a Ford/Mazda the slave cylinder and plastic line to the master cylinder. A very big job for the do-it-yourself-er.
Its under the timing belt cover, driven by the timing belt. Replace the timing belt when you replace the pump. While its apart, replace the cam and crank oil seals, and check the bearing for the tensioner, it will need to be replaced also.
That's the "throw out" or "release bearing". If it makes a loud noise you'll have to take it to a shop as the transmission has to be pulled to replace it.
The clutch, pressure plate and release bearing are usually all replaced at one time....
Are you asking where the throw out bearing is located?
If so, removal of your transmission is necessary to access it. It will be on your input shaft of your tranny behind your clutch. Its on the other side of your clutch fork.
