Angry Throw out bearing going out at 70k?!??

Recently there's been a lot of chatter around my engine bay and inside of the cabin. After a long drive, the chatter comes back and my buddy told me it could be the throw out bearing. So I dip my clutch whenever I hear it and it goes away until I release again. Its very feint but still a concern. Is there anyone else that had this problem??? Please help!

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

A throw out bearing would make a grinding noise when you depress the clutch pedal. Not when it is released..... So basially your clutch is chattering a little bit, which means your flywheel and clutch when making contact makes some noise.

Your clutch is starting to go out. Not the throw out bearing. I wouldn't be overly concerned unless your clutch sticks to the flywheel after you release it to shift or when it is fully engaged your revs jump when you give it gas. That is a good indication if you need to change the clutch. These cars have a good amount of chatter at idle with the clutch engaged.

Clutch chatter is normal on these cars. I've had it from day 1 and so have all my buddies.
