throw-out bearing going bad?

OK- bought my 2011 JKUR with 15000 miles on it 3months ago. Now have 21800 and have noticed a high pitched squealing/ singing noise when I'm moving at low speeds. The noise stops when I push in the clutch.

Clutch test done, and its taking a little long to stall.
Does this sound like throw out bearing only or any other parts need to be replaced? Any other

If so, what are my chances it will be covered on warranty?
Thanks in advance!

I had my replaced at 25,000 under warranty. No issues and has been quiet ever since.

Note that the warranty booklet says under the 5-year power train warranty:

Quote:
NOTE: MANUAL TRANSMISSION CLUTCH
PARTS ARE NOT COVERED AT ANY TIME.
But, if you're still under the 36 month warranty, you're good (IIRC)

On the 3/36 warranty, the clutch is warrantied for 1 year or 12k miles. Either way, OP unfortunately you're out of the warranty period.

My suggestion would be to let it ride until it becomes a problem. Sometimes they are just noisy but they won't fail. I'm unfamiliar with this stall test you speak of so I can't relate to that. It will cost a decent amount in labor just to get to the throw out bearing, at that point it's best to replace the clutch too. If you can hold out long enough, that will probably be your only clutch replacement over the life of the jeep

Usually throw outs make a lot of racket when holding the clutch pedal down if they are going bad not when the clutch is ingaged . Well that has been my experience with 3 different vehicles at least.

So now you can remove my wise crack post, and the OP's reply, because they no longer make any sense...

See what happens when you change the past.....

Rod Serling warned us about this.... I think you may have torn the fabric of reality. Nice going, and you a mod and all....

High pitch singing at low speed is your thowout bearing.
Good news it will most likley be several years or more before it needs to be replaced.

Mine did the same thing from 2007 to 2012. Dealer replaced the throwout bearing, clutch and pressure plate under warranty when it finally gave out. I had to pay a $100 dedictible, rental car was covered.

Wasn't easy mind you, I had to prove without a doubt the bearing failed and not the clutch. My warranty clearly stated ALL bearings in the vehicle were covered under the bumper to bumper warranty policy.

Thanks everybody for the feedback. Dealer replaced the throw out bearing and covered it on warranty.
