Throw out bearing?

I recently noticed that when in neutral I hear a pretty good squeal/squeak and it stops once I engage the clutch and starts again when I disengage it. Is this my throw out bearing going bad? If so, how long can I expect to be able to drive like this? Is the URD upgrade/repair kit the best solution?

Mine is going out as well it was chirping really bad about 6k miles ago, but I stopped riding the clutch as much and it went away for the most part. I still hear it sometimes for a second when I push down on the clutch. I was going to go the URD route as well let me know how it goes.

That is your throwout bearing. I would get it fixed as soon as you can because it can damage the input shaft on the transmission. And yes, the URD one is the best option. I have it on my truck.

I put a new one in mine when I did the clutch, and it started sqeaking again in no time. I wish I had used the urd one, its a nice piece.

Got it done and put back together and I have to say it is 100% better. The clutch is buttery smooth compared to what it was and no more squeak.
