Ok, last week I posted a message about my clutch throw out bearing.  I
recieved responses at both ends of the spectrum.  Some told me how terrible
it is to drive holding your foot up in front of the clutch (not putting
pressure on it and disengaging it) and also slipping the clutch on hills.
They said that would make it go very quickly.  Others told me that they had
been told the same thing by the shop, that the throw out bearing went
because of riding the clutch.  They also told me to drive the car as I
wished making sure that certain key clutch components were ok.  I've
certainly got mixed thoughts here on this.  I mean, I would figure that the
clutch disc would go before the Carbon bearing would unless something else
was worn or adjusted improperly.  Can somebody please help me out here,
because I'm not too thrilled about paying the shop another $800 to put a new
clutch in after I just paid them to do it a year ago.  It just doesn't make
sense to me.
