Unhappy New clutch squeal when accelerating help!

Why is my new clutch squealing when I accelerate?

I replaced all of the components and after driving for about a week and a half the squeal started

When looking through the dust cap on the trans I could see that the sound looked like it was coming from the throw out bearing

This noise happens with or without the clutch engaged- which boggles my happens in all gears and neutral

The squeal gets higher pitched with rpms and when you decelerate it goes with that too. Then afterwards will chirp a few times then stop

Why? And is there I way I could go in through the dust cap and put grease on anything?

If so what kind of grease? The noise is unbelievable

Default Re: New clutch squeal when accelerating help!

It may be the wrong slave cyl, causing the throwout bearing to be too close to the pressure plate fingers, making it turn all the time, or just a bad throwout bearing right out of the box.
