If it is a throw-out bearing it will only make noise when pressure is applied to clutch pedal, there is also a pilot bearing that will squeel with clutch in if bad. when doing a clutch replacement all these parts should be replaced.

Good evening from Cyprus Matthew. Is you clutch system Hydraulic or with cable? If it is hydraulic operated,just ask for somebody to help you bleed the system and see whether the fault has been resolved. Sometimes whilst removing the hydraulic slave cylinder from the gearbox housing even without stripped manage to create air bubbles into the system and makes the clutch operation hard life. Also check whether the gear oil you used -if you did- is the correct in specifications ( Viscosity ) according to the make of your vehicle. Good luck.
whine can be from a few locations check fluid in power steering pump -listen to fan has a fluid electronic clutch sometimes whine and belt tensioner these three are all by each other if whine is under truck check trans fluid may need fluid
You may be having AC problems but that is not what happened when the Steering locked unless the AC is on the same belt as the Power steering unit. That whining you are hearing when you turn is actually the power steering unit being low on fluid or the power steering pump going out. Based on what you have described my guess is that the unit has gone out and needs to be replaced. As far as the AC compressor is concerned, if the unit is low on Freon it will not engage once it gets too low unless the clutch goes out. When you look at the center of the AC compressor when the engine is running and the AC is off you should see the pulley free spinning and the very center of the pulley won't be spinning, that is the clutch Dis-engaged. When you turn the AC on the Clutch should engage and allow the compressor to work. You will hear it kick in and kick out repeatedly if it is low on Freon. If it is too low it will never kick in because the low pressure switch won't allow it.
Then that would be the bearing, called a "throw-out" bearing as it is what pushes the pressure plate fingers in, & throws the clutch out so that you are not moving, or are changing gears.
These are usually pre-lubricated & sealed, after mileage the oil will rest in just one part of the bearing from being hot & used when you park it, until you use it.
More so in the cold weather, but once it spins a bit & warms up, the lubrication is again available, the noise goes away. It could do this for a long time, you'll notice it is always making the noise if the lubrication has completely seeped out of the bearing and if that happens, consider repairs before it becomes a constant howl.
Bad bearings. Perhaps a throw out bearing. The pressure on it varies depending on whether your pushing on the pedal or not, and how much. If the noise occured only when the truck is moving, then I would say it is the input bearing. Changed alot of those years ago.
who ever told you its the throw out bearing was wright. its an enclosed bearing so it does not run in any oil. if it only makes noise when it cold or sets for a while its common and dose not warrent taking it to a shop. all there going to tell you is you need a new clutch$$$$witch you do not need.
