Installed a Valair Single Flywheel Cluth, Now a New Noise

Had mechanic install New Valair Single Flywheel, Clutch Disk, Pressure Plate and Throw-out Bearing. Clutch works great! But now I have a high-pitched "Chirping" noise. It starts to go away when you depress the clutch an inch or so, and is completely gone when the clutch pedalis fully depressed to the floor.

The old two-piece flywheel and clutch assembly did not make this noise, so what could I be missing?

Sounds like something is wrong with the throw-out bearing. I would take it back to the mechanic that installed it.

I have had two different Valair clutches and they both made noises after they were installed. The noise went away after I broke them in.
