    if you cant hear it when you're driving, you might still have time, i could hear mine through most of the gears at a lower speed in my last vr4 before i sold it.

    definate thrust bearing may as well do whole clutch while u have it all apart as u usually get clutch and bearing in kit form when you buy

    So got the gearbox back today he said it was pristine inside there was the tinyest amount of wear in the inputshaft bearing but nothing that should have caused the noise or been a problem, anyway it's got new bearings now so hopefully it's sorted, there was a fair amount of ware in the clutch release bearing so perhaps it was that?

    My manual gearbox (V6 non VR4) is making a very similar noise, and only when warm. I haven?t done the clutch pedal operation test yet I?ll do so tomorrow and report the outcome.

    Is it just the clutch release bearing or is it the gearbox input shaft bearing as well? Answers above suggested both..
