Throw out bearing failing...should it be covered under drivetrain warranty?

Hi all,

I have a 2011 two door Wrangler sport that I purchased brand new in March of 2011. Appears from three different friend (not yet gone to mechanic) my throw out bearing is failing.

I want to be educated before I start taking it places and making calls as I do know if not covered this is a big and time consuming job.

This is something I found in my warranty: Transmission: transmission case and all internal
parts; torque converter; drive/flex plate; transmission
range switch; speed sensors; pressure
sensors; transmission control module; bell housing;
oil pan; seals and gaskets for listed components
only.
NOTE: MANUAL TRANSMISSION CLUTCH
PARTS ARE NOT COVERED AT ANY TIME.

Any thoughts that anyone can give me would be most helpful and VERY APPRECIATED as a single gal!!!

Throw out bearing is not covered by your warranty.

Thank you! Any ideas on how much I will be looking at? I saw a few things online that say anywhere from $500 to $1200?

If it is in fact the throw out bearing I'd recommend you replace the entire clutch while it is torn down; clutch plate, pressure plate, throw out bearing. The labor is by far the biggest part of the cost and I wouldn't want to pay the labor costs twice by not doing it all now and having the clutch go out later.


Cost? Haven't had anything done by a shop in many years. $1000 +/- for the whole clutch wouldn't surprise me.
$300 for the clutch kit - clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing + $600-700 labor
$50 for the throw out bearing + $500-600 labor


Someone with more recent experience with having shop work done may be able to give you a better estimate.
