Annoying Under-Hood Squeaking

or something else?
cricking/chirping/squeaking = throw out bearing on clutch...
really annoying noise too... i've gone through 4 of them
chirp... chirp... chirp....

If it is the throw out bearing, is it something serious or only an annoyance?
Maybe that's another reason to pull the engine over the summer and change the clutch, replace the rear main seal, and check the valve clearance. I can't stand having my car sound like a heap when idling in traffic.

If it is an idler for the timing belt it could be a bear to find.

have someone get in the car and depress the clutch pedal.
if the chirpy chirp stops... it's your t/o bearing

How does one diagnose that? Take off the cover and run it with a stethascope or just pull the timing belt and look for play and leakage?
