Why replace a clutch release bearing?

Hey, I am swapping trannys and was wondering why it is a good thing to replace a clutch release bearing. How could I tell if it needs to be replaced? What exactly does this part do? Thanks

Re: Why replace a clutch release bearing?

It should be replaced with the clutch anyway, just like the flywheel should be swapped out or at least resurfaced.

Sometimes the throwout (release) bearing goes out prematurely though. What it does is depresses and releases the clutch pressure plate, and acts as a ball bearing between that and the clutch piece. Many clutch kits already come with it. I think it's only like $30 at most for a good name brand one if your kit doesn't have one.

As far is if it goes out prematurely, often times it makes noises. Again, replace that and the clutch at the same time anyway because usually if one goes out, the other will be going out before long and it's already a pain in the ass to get the tranny on and off as it is.
