    I was led to belive that if you have a grinding noise that goes away when te clutch is push in, then you have a bad throw out bearing. I replace that as well as installed a new exedy stage one clutch. I still have the grind that goes away when the clutch is pushed in. What now

    that is just the opposite of what happens

    no noise when clutch pedal is not pressed but noise when clutch pedal is pressed is probably throwout bearing if clutch is properly adjusted - before clutch pedal is pressed, the throwout bearing is just sitting there doing nothing, if the clutch is properly adjusted, so it can't make a noise - when you depress the pedal and engage the throwout bearing with the pressure plate, the throwout bearing starts spinning and if bad will make noise

    noise when clutch pedal is not pressed and goes away when clutch pedal is pressed is probably the input shaft bearing in the transmission - when clutch pedal is not pressed, the input shaft on the transmission is spinning with the clutch disc and bad input shaft bearing will make noise - when clutch pedal is pressed, the clutch disc and input shaft stops spinning and the noise goes away

    time to replace the input shaft bearing, which means removing and disassembling the transmission

    ok, what if it feels like the clutch pedail is a little weak not very much at all. and you engage the clutch but it wont go into 1st, 3rd, 5th? or it only goes in some times? not thread jacking just a thought that is relavent.

    probably needs clutch adjustment if it has a cable clutch - if hydraulic, could need bleeding or new slave/master cylinder or it could need a new clutch

    clutch is not very old at all. and it goes into 2nd 3rd(more than any top gears) 4th R with no problem at all.
