Default Goofy clutch noise

Hi guys,

Of course this had to happen 2 days before the autox Im still going to try to go to but anyways...

When my clutch is depressed there is no noise or anything and the car shifts and drives fine... but... when i release the clutch there is a high pitch grinding noise. Doesnt matter if the car is in neutral or 5th that noise is always there when the clutch is released.

Im thinking its the throwout bearing, any ideas?

Sounds like the throwout bearing.

How loud is it?

Sounds like a throw out to me, is there an inspection cover or something on the trans that you can remove to get a better look in there?

By the shift linkage there is a boot I pulled off to look inside but couldnt see anything. Trans is coming out tomorrow for some new bearings and seals.
