Default New clutch making noise when engaged

I recently had my transmission worked on. A new clutch and flywheel is installed. Now when I push the clutch in it makes a whining noise similar to the noise power steering makes sometimes. Any ideas?

Bad throwout bearing? Should have a new one with the clutch replacement.

Don't think he changed that. The clutch, flywheel, slave cylinder and pressure plate was changed. Like I said, the sound is very much like when you move the steering wheel to turn and it makes that whine noise. It's not loud at all and the clutch seems to be pretty normal feeling? Anyone have the part # (mopar etc) for a 2007 PT GT throw out bearing? I found these on Rock Auto but don't know if they are right https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...e+bearing,1968 or this one? https://www.autozone.com/drivetrain/...ing/209605_0_0

My cousin is saying that the bearing is built into the slave cylinder which was changed. Is that right?

After investigating it some more, I got under where the pedal is and it almost sounds like it's the rubber part on the inside of the firewall that is making the noise.

I'd try spraying some silicone lube on that rod that goes through the rubber grommet and the pivot point. And I've NEVER heard of a bearing being built into a slave cylinder, but I'm not that smart, so what do I know? Did your cousin change the pilot bearing in the end of the crankshaft? As I understand throwout bearings, they're usually attached to a "fork".

I'm not sure if he changed the pilot bearing or not. I'm just hoping it is the rubber grommet that is all that is going on.
