Has anyone ever heard of one going bad. What are the symptoms? My car has a weird rattle even if the clutch is pushed all the way in.

Thanks,
Sid

The throwout bearing will make a whining/scraping noise if gone bad. They also tend to squeel when the clutch is being engaged. If you're hearing a constant rattle it idle, I'd say that your flywheel is starting to go. Higher mile MKIV flywheels tend to rattle at idle.

My bad throw out bearing made bird chirping noises that went away if I push in the clutch.

Does your can have problems shifting? When my pilot bearing went bad, shifting became more difficult. The bearing would only make a high pitched sound when the clutch pedal was depressed all the way while idl/.

I bet its not your throwout bearing. When they go bad, they squel when engaged in gear and in the middle of the clutch travel if you have a push type clutch.

Possible hub/fork/fork pivot problem. Remove the inspection covers and see if the above are out of line/broken.
