Default Clutch squeak

Car: 2012 wrx stg2 + intake
And now it has a stg 2 clutch master clutch. About two days after installed there is this annoying squeaking when clutch is out. No matter what gear. Even when in neutral. It sounds like a cricket. Then tempo of the squeak increases as my rpms increase. The squeak will go away as soon as I push the petal in ever so slightly and stay away until I let it out again completely.

And insight as to what it is and how to get rid of it?

Wasn't there before the clutch was it? Makes me think it would be something that would have been out in new like a throw out bearing or pilot bearing

No, there wasn't. And the new kit came with both throw out and pilot beating. Someone said clutch fork? But I have no idea. I think I'm gonna ride it out until break in period is over and see if its still there.

Granted yes should have been replaced but if they were put in wrong or lubed wrong could cause an issue I don't see how a clutch fork would be any kind of issue if it makes noise while idling lol

If it makes noise constantly and increases with engine rpm that means it is always spinning especially if its constant with rpm do you have any issues going into any gear at all? All fluids are good and not low?

No problems with getting into gear. And yes all are good. Tranny fluid just replaced when clutch job was done.

Ya like, those are the symptoms, but it's just weird because they were just replaced two weeks ago.

I've seen it where either too much grease or not enough in the right places can cause issues like this hate to say it you could try like regreasing the part of the fork where the slave rides on and double check pedal free play and see if it gets you anywhere but chirping like you say generally is a bearing noise

Its the throw out bearing..

Ive got an Exedy I put in this past spring that does the same thing, but only sometimes..

What can you do to fix it.. either ignore it or replace it...
