Default Bad Transfer Gear Bearings






Has anyone seen these do this before? I've been getting a lot of noise that sounded like a bearing and what do you know .
All the other bearings and gears look fine. I don't know if it's from the Royal Purple I've been using in there or if there preload was never set right from the get go.

Just curious to know what the noise was like that you were experiencing?

I have a 2006 WRX TR with 20,000 miles and this is what I'm getting now:

With the engine running and the transmission in neutral, there is a squeak or squeal that goes away when the clutch is depressed. Noise is also heard while the car is in gear and moving.

Pilgrim Subaru in Rhode Island has already replaced the throw out (clutch release) bearing but I noticed the noise again a day or two later.

It's going back to the dealer on Monday and I'm going to request that they take a good look at the transmission and related bearings.

At this point I have mixed emotions; I am happy that the problem is closer to being solved but sad because I don't want to be without my car for a week or so.

I was hearing a growling noise like a bad wheel bearing only when I jacked up the car to find the noise it was coming from the tranny. Your problem won't be the same bearings since these only spin when the car is moving so you won't get any noise in neutral.
If I were you I'd wiggle the clutch fork while the noise is happening and see if it changes. If it does they did a bad job on the TO bearing. If not I guess a main shaft bearing.

If your going through TO bearings that quickly then I think they need to adjust the clutch pedal, because it must be pushing on the TO and making it wear out very quickly.

Or the TO fork is screwed up somehow.

I think the throw out bearing and the rest of the clutch assembly is fine. At this point I really think it is something in the transmission. I think the OP is on the right track with the main shaft bearing.

It's going to the dealer again tomorrow morning I'll post about it again once I get the car back.

On a side note I checked the tranny oil the other day (about 5 days after the throw bearing was replaced) and it was low. Does replacing a throw bearing involve draining the tranny oil? I'm wondering if the dealer forgot to top the tranny oil off once the work was done. They did neglect to put the turbo heat shield back on.
