Throwout bearing failure

So I finally got around to pulling the 924 apart to check out the condition of the throwout bearing. Turns out it totally failed after throwing all it's grease out into the bellhousing. My theory is that the clearance between the throwout and clutch release levers was eliminated as the friction plate wore in so the bearing was spinning in concert with the pressure plate 100% of the time.

Although apparantly they should be able to do that. So it's back to the drawing board.
