I believe I know the answer but I have to ask. Any way to lubricate the throwout bearing without removing the transmission? Boxster S with 69,700 miles on original clutch.
The throwout bearing isn't engaged with the clutch out. Your noise is probable the transmission input shaft turning, may be normal or could be a noisy bearing.
