Hi, I inquired about this a while back, but my clutch is doing something different than most diagnoses I've read on the subject of throwout bearings going bad. Mine is fine at idle with clutch disengaged, and with clutch engaged fully. Works perfectly without the noise most of the time. I only get the whirring noice as clutch is engaging, starting to move from a standstill, and even then only under some load. It doesn't happen every time I start off. I assume this is still a throwout bearing problem, but maybe just an adjustment? Clutch only has about 20K miles on it. Any info much appreciated! -jw -- 1984 900S hatchback 150K miles
