that info would of helped but the t/o bearing is in the center so I would think you would hear it from either side. Does it sound like a vacuum whistle

Cool

is it a steady noise or a chirping because most of the time a throw out bearing is a chirping noise but a really bad throw out bearing can be a constant squealing

Passenger side is loudest, sounds like a bearing in the AC/heater blower motor to me, is it comming from under the dash near the foot well?

usually if it's the throwout bearing the chirping will stop when you step on the clutch
