I have a '99 Integ GS which I purchased with 13,000 miles on it, the car currently has 52,000 miles on it and I started hearing a whirring noise (throwout bearing) when the car reached about 22,000~~25,000 miles on it. The noise goes away when I put an ever so slight amount of pressure on the clutch pedal, but returns as soon as the clutch pedal is depressed. My mechanic friend heard it the other day and mentioned I should adjust the pedal. I think he thought I had a cable tranny. He said if I adjusted the pedal, it would relieve pressure off of the throwout bearing, or something along those lines. I was wondering what approach I should take. I searched for and read all of the posts regarding clutch pedal adjustment and throwout bearings on this site, and I am still uncertain on what I must do to fix this problem.
