Clutch throwout bearing seems to be going

My case was different. Flew to FL last fall to pick-up the 200 20v avant w/ 146k miles and TO bearing squealed loud enough to attract passer-by attention. PO reported squealing started at 141k. Proceeded to drive it to NH, then 800 more miles w/ zero clutch problems.
NEA did the job- reported clutch still had life.
One can only guess how much further it could have been driven before total clutch failure.

I had the same problem last fall at 175k. Paid a shop $700 to do the labor <br>(included new rack) since they were in their). Bought a kit from Blau for $300 <br>something. Bearing was shot, guide sleeve OK, clutch almost down to the <br>rivets. It was time. Had a problem shortly after with the clutch master and/or <br>slave cylinder. I went to the shop while they were working on it. It was <br>quite a job.<br><br>Fix it before it blows apart! And have the flywheel resurfaced ($40).<br><br>Pete<br>_
