2003 Toyota Echo Question: noisy trnsmission

Standard tansmission that is making alot of noise. No slippage and shifts fine. Could it be the throwout bearing? The car has 128000 miles. -
Answer 1
Depends on when you hear the noise. When was the last time (if ever) the clutch was replaced or inspected? -
Comment 1
Clutch was never replaced and the noise is when the car is being driven and gets louder in the higher gears. -
Comment 2
Could be the throwout bearing, and could be internal bearings in the transaxle itself. -
