Throw out bearing

How can I tell if my throw out bearing should be replaced? The bearing spins freely with minimal noise or grinding. But my engine and tranny are already separated, so should I just replace it anyway since they aren't all that expensive? I'd appreciate your feedback thanks!

Since it's already apart, it's a no brainer, replace it and the clutch.

+1 million. TOB/Pilot bearing should be done whenever the trans separates from the engine. Clutch is a good idea too unless you know it has low miles. If its a 20k mile good clutch, for example, no reason to change it.

I agree. I'm just going to go ahead and order a new clutch kit (clutch, pressure plate, tob, & pilot + alignment tool) doesn't make sense not to do it since its already apart.

Might be a good time to change tran fluid if you have the money and are so inclined. Also if your rear main seal is having issues now is the time

Always change your rear main seal, and pilot/throw out bearings whenever u have trans out. They dont cost alot, and its good peace of mind. I made mistake before and didnt change rear main when i changed clutch, an 2 weeks later i was losing oil from there an had to pull trans again for a seal. So always change em anytime teans is out
