i noticed recently that my car has been making a weird whirring noise or something when i downshift. i took an audio clip from my phone and converted it to mp3 for you all.

the knock noise is me accidentally hitting the phone into the glass when i hit record.

So uh...I was reinstalling my interior and dash and stuff today and guess what I found? A brand new throw out bearing on the carpet


only thing I can think of is that my friend forgot to put it in the flywheel before we installed everything...*sigh*

What exactly does it do and how ****ed am I for not having it in there?

and sorry for thread jacking.

Update:

when i woke up this morning i had to drive my car to work. the same mysterious noise happened again.

then 8 hours later i get back in the car and drive it around because i was going to take it to my tuner to have him check it out. and lo and behold the noise didnt happen. i drove it for about 15 min downshifting alot at different speeds, it mainly happened in 3rd and 2nd.

also. in the morning i noticed that if i rev it up before the downshift the sound didnt happen.


so does anyone have any clue what was making that noise?
