What is a release bearing?
The release bearing, also known as the throw out bearing, is a ball bearing and collar assembly that slides in a hub that extends from the front of the transaxle allowing for the connector fork to move in more than one direction. This bearing plays a very crucial role in the clutch assembly as it is the main facilitation for disengaging the pressure plate whenever the fork is suppressed by the clutch pedal. It's responsible for reducing friction between the release fork and pressure plate levers.

What can go wrong with a release bearing?
The release bearing can become worn from prolonged use. Being in such a high tension environment, it is common to experience wear, warping, or surface damage. Surface damage, which could spell more severe implications for your clutch assembly, is most likely caused by a lack of lubrication. In very rare cases, the release bearing can completely break or become unseated, but that usually doesn't happen.

How do I know that I have a worn release bearing?
The most common indicator that you have a worn release bearing is a grinding noise when you shift your gears. It will sound very metallic but still somewhat muffled since it is inside the transmission bell housing. If this bearing was exposed, the sound would be quite ear shattering and frightening for both the ears and the pocket book of the car owner. Other indicators would be experiencing difficulty disengaging the clutch so you can shift, or you may experience rough shifting causing misses or slips.

What are the different kinds of release bearings?
There are mechanical bearings which rely on the clutch system for lubrication to do their job and maintain longevity. There are also hydraulic bearings that rely on the master and slave cylinders to keep them pressurized and lubricated to function. Both require the same level of attention. There are also performance bearings which handle more pressure and tension for high torque vehicles with heavy duty transmissions.

Is there anything I can do to help?
Yes, there is much you can do. It is all about maintenance, maintenance, and more maintenance. The number one cause of release bearing problems is poor maintenance leading to poor lubrication which causes unbearable amounts of friction. Be sure to keep your system lubricated with high grade transmission oil. Also, don't shift aggressively or do not “pop” or “drop” gears as the amount of tension is dangerous.
