Auto Systems and Repair: Clutch Release Bearing

Symptoms of Wear or Failure

  • Abnormal noise when clutch pedal is depressed

Related Repair Advice

  • Some newer vehicles combine the clutch release bearing and slave cylinder into a single unit. In this case, it is necessary to remove the transmission to replace the slave cylinder.
  • The release bearing should be replaced whenever the clutch assembly is replaced
  • Incorrect linkage/cable adjustment or "riding" the clutch (resting one's foot on the clutch pedal, not allowing the clutch to release completely) can cause premature release bearing failure
