Assuming it's the throwout bearing, you basically have to do a clutch job. Unless you're a pretty serious mechanic, this is not something you'll want to do yourself. When mine went, I think it was about $575 INCLUDING a full clutch job w/parts. This was at a reputable independent BMW mechanic.

Whatever you do, don't just to the throwout bearing alone. This job is mostly labor so putting in a new clutch when it's apart is a no-brainer.

Hope I'm wrong and it's something simple. :)


: I think it is only acting up now because i haven't driven it in so long. How much labor was involved in throwout bearing replacement? Did you do it yourself, or have a mechanic do it for you? Estimated cost/hours?

: Thanks,
