Ok I misdiagnosed the noise. Now it seems to be coming from the bell housing when I push the clutch down and hold it. It sounds like when you rub your finger around a wine glass...a low loud harmonic sound....goes away when I let out the guess is throw out bearing? How long do I have I don't get paid til next Friday a clutch kit st2 is $450 or so an my neighbor runs a shop he can install it for $200. (I live in a condo no working on cars outside which is were I would need to)

Should I just replace them both? I
