What do you mean they smeared grease all over the bearing? Did the shop remove the bearing flange and looked at the actual bearing? Also, did you see that the clutch was nothing but metal and all the friction material was blown off or is this just what the shop told you?

I saw the clutch, and the area of the engine where you see the outside of the IMS was all black and greasy, they showed me a pic. I neglected to ask for the pic but I'll get it next time im in the area.

You have a higher probability (like 9 to 1) that your car never fail, so... don't let the forums scare you

Sounds more like your RMS was just starting to leak oil and that's just dust/dirt stuck to the oily residue.

You saw the clutch disk and it had no friction mater left at all? Are you sure it wasn't the flywheel or the pressure plate that they showed you?

agree. no need to pay all the labor again just to replace the IMS bearing. at that point you're getting to diminished returns...either sell the car and take the (perceived) hit in value or keep it and do it next clutch
