Replacing throw out bearing

My ZF6 makes kind of a grinding noise when I let the clutch out. A few of the guys I have talked to say its the throw out bearing. They also say its normal for you throw out bearing to make that kind of noise. Is that true? Its annoying but if its normal I guess I will leave it alone. What do you all think?

Anyone know what a throw out bearing would cost for a ZF6? Whats involved in replacing it? Any ideas on how much it would cost to have it done?

a throw out bearing will make a lil noise when the clutch is out but nothing should ever make a grinding sound. does it do it with the clutch out in ever gear

Nope, just overdrive. If I move the stick around it'll get worse, or go away depending on where I move it. Its a very light grinding noise, radio and fans have to be low or off to hear it.

its hard to say with out hearing it in person. it is not the throw out bearing if it just does it in 6th. you will hear some trans noise through the shifter boot. did you drain the fluid? if not drain it and see how much metal is on the drain plug. has it always made this noise? we have replaced a lot of these trannys. if there is a lot of metal on the plug get it rebuild before all the parts inside are smoked. most of them we see get run low on fluid and are locked up. $1900 for an exchange

Where in Missouri are you? I'm in KC and have no problem driving a little while if you think you can give me an idea of what it is, especially if it means saving me 1900 bucks.

It might do it in other gears too, hard to know cause I never cruise in any of the lower gears enough to hear it, and the engine is usually revving enough to make it hard to hear if it was there.

The fluid was changed with mobil 1 synthetic atf last winter, so maybe 8k ago. I just started to really notice the noise at the beginning of the month some time as I was driving across MO and KS then back to KC. I drove all the way to Michigan and back July and don't remember hearing it then, but the A/C and radio were on the whole time.
