One day, when I depressed the clutch while in gear I heard chirping. I knew it was likely a clutch problem. The next day, I had to go somewhere and planned on addressing the clutch situation the next day. I didn't make it. When I stopped for gas I tried to put it in reverse and the car lurched backward as soon as I got it in and there was a very loud clunk/slam sound. I take trans out and throwout bearing is still good. Clutch doesn't look to have too bad of finger wear(all even and light). Clutch disc is well used and flywheel is definately well used. Pilot bearing is totally destroyed. The needles in the bearing all just fell out. This normal? Anyone have this happen? It doesn't look as though the flywheel was resurfaced when I had a shop do it 2 1/2 yrs ago(only 60k since then). Are these symptoms of that? Could this have harmed the crank? or trans? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
