I thought my throw out bearing was noise yo. My 93 1.3ltr 5spd sprint, then I noticed some growling noises as I was leaving a stop sign in first gear, it has started to get a little noisier and I now can hear it occasionally in 2nd gear. My throw out bearing is noisy when my foot is off the clutch but quiet when I push it in. Is this a common problem? My car has 150,000 miles on her and is a cream puff, I just want to fix the problem before it costs me even more. Any help is appreciated

Welcome aboard Bret! Hate to break this to you, but you need to source another transmission. And fairly quick. Until then, dump the transmission oil and add fresh. That may buy you a little more time. But not a lot of time. There's metal shavings, in the oil, eating up what good bearings are left.

There is also a differential shaft and the inner race ways to the spider gears, and the thrust washers inside the differential that could be causing the sound(s). Either bearings or this it would require a complete overhaul. As above cheaper to source a different transmission.

I don't want to buy another transmission, but would rather rebuild mine. Any sources for parts?

Sounds like the input shaft bearing in the transmission is bad.
Ebay for trans rebuild kits.

I can likely provide you with used gears. Dealer is generally the only source for new and they are very expensive if they are available. With your symptoms, I'd say you will be happy with the results of a bearing/synchro and seal kit.
I've done a very large number of these trannies, historically the 1.3 ones have the least amount of engagement teeth wear on the gears, but a slightly higher bearing failure rate. Seems odd that they failure different than the 3cyl models, but over the years I worked on so many(hundreds and hundreds!) and this is a pattern that developed. Bearing failure caught early is the easiest thing to deal with.
