I have an 04 IS300 w/ 78k miles manual 5-spd. Everything is stock besides wheels, suspension, and short shifter. My clutch recently started to squeak whenever I compress it and release it. My transmission also makes this chirping noise whenever I am off the clutch, but when i barely compress the clutch it will go away. Now I've read about the throwout bearing being shot and all. I took my car to a shop and the guy said I needed to replace my whole clutch .. which costs some moolah that I can't afford right now because of school and all. I was wondering what my real problem was and how much would it cost for me to fix it all? Would it be cheaper to go to the dealership and get it fixed there? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
