Default Noise when clutch is disengaged

This noise just started recently. Sometimes, normally when the car is warm, I get a odd rubbing (or rolling) noise when I disengage the clutch. At first I thought it was the AC running, but that is not the case. It makes the noise when the clutch is pressed and stops as soon as I put the car in gear. I don't seem to have any trouble changing gears.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Probably the throwout bearing.

So would you recommend just replacing the entire clutch?

If you're going to the trouble of replacing the TOB, then you might as well replace the clutch and pilot bearing while you're in there. A new clutch fork is also a good idea.

I found a place locally that some friends have recommended that can do the labor for $300. He quoted me $230 for the clutch kit, and said it was the OEM replacement. He also said he had no problem installing an aftermarket kit if I wanted to buy that and bring it to him.

What would you recommend? OEM or aftermarket?

It's at the shop right now getting another OEM clutch. But apparently, it won't be $300. The long tube headers are causing a problem for the guy working on it. He says getting to the clutch is a pain with the headers and he might have to lift the engine up a tad and unbolt the headers just to get to the clutch.... he's thinking $600-700 now just for the labor... blahhh.
