Heat on a bearing? Seems odd, but itís off. Does it feel grindy or spin slower than normal? The output bearing on mine- I could feel the rough spin. Anyways, you are on the way to fix the issue. Good job!

It wasn't smooth smooth as a bearing usually is, which I suppose would cause issues when it's whirring at 1000+ rooms. Now when I hit it with brake cleaner and spun it without any oil you could tell 100% something was off, it was a chattery mess that just sounded oh so bad ahha. Anyway update I got the new bearing ordered from the dealer (apparently only 4 in North America?). Coming in tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

Another update ladies and gents. I got the bearing and snap ring in. I went ahead and paid a local shop $20 to take the old bearing off, used said old bearing to push the new bearing on, and added the snap bearing on top. Fun thing I dropped 6th gear and its synchros etc. off while doing it so I had to figure that out too. Now getting to putting it all back together, lets hope I did this right!

Alrighty, so everything back in and it's running great! No more supercharger sound! I'll be making a video in how I did it so make sure to find me on YouTube if you'd like some help out there, and hit me with a sub 😁

Default Replace both or just one bearing?

So my tC has been making the noise and I’m going to be dropping the trans and having the bearings replaced by a shop. Now the TSB from Toyota says to replace the rear bearing near the snap ring but while I’m in there is it worth it to replace the front bearing as well?
Or should I not worry about it. I know that involves taking all the gears off to get to it. I’ll also replace the clutch and throw out bearing while I’m in there.

Any info would help thank you

Okay I will! How did you go about replacing the snap rings and it also mentions shims and other bearings that should be replaced when reassembling the trans.

Used snap ring pliers, and re-ordered the same # on the rings I removed, it sounds silly that it is a non-reusable item just because you have to widened it to remove it... Well, you do that when installing the new one...Right? Shims are needed if there is extreme wear items, hence why you measure the distance between what is called out, which I had no difference. I installed new 3rd hub, synchros, snap rings and the front and rear bearings. Those needle bearings were fine.

Default the bad bearing

Hi guys! I have a bad input shaft bearing too. Bought my car in 2013 from a garage that buys wrecked cars and rebuild to sell back. A local one with a good rep. I knew I wouldn't have any Toyota warranty on it but I thought my money was on a sure bet with a Toyota (lol).
Garage still offered a warranty on it. Mine was only cosmetic damage, i wouldn't have gone with undercarriage wrecks or ripped wheels or anything. Anyway, bought it at 8000 kms.

@ 12 000 km i noticed the noise in my garage, closed spaces were the only way you could hear it at that point. Didn't think much of it until i read online it was the input shaft bearing and you needed to open up the tranny to get it replaced.
Liked the car and decided to buy a winter beater to keep it away from Canadian winters and salt. The beater paid itself in a lil over a year due to insurance savings. (i was 19 at the time)
@40 000 kms I replaced the oil with royal purple syncromesh 75w90 it felt a lil better on the shifts at cold temps
@60 000 kms the bearing noise was noticeable at all times but not very annoying or anything, a non-car person wouldn't notice unless i point it out also the car refuses to shift at -25 to -30 ish degrees Celsius until it's warmed up 2-5 mins,
I don't know any other cars that do that. I didn't care too much i was only starting it in the winter to get the fluids going a bit, never drove it very far (only fresh snow if there was any, no salt)

@80 000 kms that supercharger though there's no hiding from it, getting paranoid over stares at the drive-thru, dunno if they like the car or wondering about the noise. The shifts are affected pretty noticeably too.
@104 000 kms last month on a road trip the bearing actually started to sound like soft intermittent engine knock. Yep it's at the eleventh hour for that bearing. Driving the beater around now until I finalize the swap (pics) and receive the transmission oil:
some Motul 300 LS, it's made for transaxle transmissions with an LSD inside. OS Giken recommends that type and a few other ones.



OS Giken LSD, ACT lightweight flywheel, ACT stage 1 pressure plate & clutch (350hp rated), Torque solutions front engine mount and MTEC Shifter spring
And this is the transmission that's going in:



2533 Canadian Pesos in parts, 3871 total

Bought it from a Toyota Tech that used to have a tC, super nice guy, he messaged me a few times to know about progress, I plan on letting him know how i feel about it once it's in. In case you didn't notice, that's a bill from Toyota,
I kept the header of the bill out of the shot to safe keep buddy's info. Part numbers are listed.
The diff still needs to go in, I'll get it done at a reputable shop and ask to inspect the internals as best as they can but i doubt they can verify much. No noise from that transmission just a bit of a hesitation from 1st to 2nd.
This thread really motivated me to attempt working on the internals if any other issues ever arise from the transmission. Initially I was just planning on selling the car if it didn't work out.
Here's a vid i shot in 2016 from right above the transmission, quite noisy when you're so close to it. Not so bad in the car.


I'll shoot an other one soon so you can all see how bad a tc's input shaft bearing can really get!
