Throw out bearing squeak after replacement

Just like the title says it still squeaks just a little but enough to hear it. I took it to my mechanic to get the entire clutch changed out due to throw out bearing squeal and worn clutch. Just a couple days ago it started squeaking again but not as loud. What could be the problem?

I'm thinking that maybe he didn't use enough grease when installing the bearing? Just my first thought

When does it squeak? Does it do with your foot on or off the clutch pedal?

When the clutch is engaged it squeaks but when I depress the pedal it stops

Sounds like the t-o bearing is not being completely disengaged from the pressure plate and is instead lightly dragging on it, causing the squeaking noise. I don't know if
There's an adjustment for this or not, but that's how I've fixed this issue on other cars.

It is still under warranty but I'm kinda pissed. Could it be a worn sleeve that goods over the input shaft? Or should I get an adjustable firewall quadrant?

there junk!! I've replaced mine 3 times in the last 5 years. the last time i had it apart i put the Heavy duty ford racing ToB and it doesnt make a noise. the other two bearing, one came from a kit i bought at advance. the other bearing was just a replacement from autozone and both of them chirped like a bird till i replaced them. i have a triple hook quadrant , adjustable cable, and a firewall adjuster and i couldn't ever get it to go away.

Really? Mine is under warranty from the mechanic but should I go get a ford racing throw out bearing for them to install?
