The TO bearing is turning any time the clutch is pressed in and the motor is running. So yes, holding the clutch in does add wear to the bearing, not just the in and out motion of the clutch arm.highanddry said:Your throw-out bearing, like any bearing, wears when there is relative motion. If the clutch is depressed at a stop sign there is no relative motion. So no, this won't cause it to fail more quickly. If you pump your clutch back and forth all day long, for five weeks, sure the throw-out bearing will give out. Chances are you'll get tired and extraordinarily bored and give up before then.

This is a tear-jerker for me: I remember my GrandFather telling me to always shift to Neutral (leave the clutch out) at a light and use the Brake.highanddry said:Old school used to say always leave the clutch out at a light.
