Wow thank you for this valuable information, one more question, when you say it's better to buy a kit that contains the concentric slave cylinder rather than buying it by itself what sort of kit did you mean, a clutch kit containing clutch and throw out bearing and Concentric slave cylinder? Thank you!

You are welcome. I mean if on the off chance you were going to reuse the old clutch and just replace the slave, it would be only a little bit more to get a whole new clutch kit which includes the slave too. The slave by itself costs almost $95. The whole clutch kit costs $165.

Pretty sure that is the noise that mine makes. It has made that noise for a minimum of 60,000 miles.

You still on the first original stock clutch? I really don't want to change it until it wears out I could care less about that bearing noise.

I would defer to the others. I think the clutch was done before I took the car from my Dad. We had an issue where he loaned it out and it came back shot. I think we were under 100K when we did the flywheel in 2012 and it has 160K now. It has been making a noise like that all along. It would probably be better to fix it before it eats up something more expensive, but I am saving any major repairs for the 200K timing belt job. By then maybe the great unwashed won't hate these cars anymore and they will be cool again!
