I have this deceleation noise that sounds like metal grinding from the front of the car.I more noticable going down a hill at 2100rpm's foot off gas 4th or 5th gear. As soon as you touch the gas the noise stopes. A subaru mechanic said it was the Input Shaft Bearing.What is an input shaft bearing and were is it located? How much to replace? Any ideas if this the problem or maybe another problem? Thanks Jeff

Could be that what he is talking about is the main shaft of the gearbox, (different side of the pond , different terminology). The engine crankshaft is connected via the clutch to the main(input) shaft of the gearbox. Main shaft supported by needle bearings either end. If he's a Subaru mechanic then would think he knows his stuff. Would entail removing gearbox from car, stripping and replacing bearings. Cost peanuts for the parts but labour charge would be quite high.
