Question Throw out bearing staple, are we suppost to glue it in?

I hear that sometimes the staple can come out and I think that might have happened on mine.....mabye. Course the only way I'll know is after I bleed the clutch slave (just in case) and if the TO bearing still makes noise I think I'll just seperate the tranny.....again Anyway just wondering what would happen if we glued the staple into the TO bearing and the fork?

The staple is not required. It can be removed during installation. Throwout bearing are not pulled back. The pressure plate pushes them back.

Throwout bearing noise versus other noises are pretty hard to isolate.

The staples don't last well do to heat cooking the plastic. I just use a rubber band. The first time you depress the clutch pedal it cuts the rubber band. I think glue or silicone would be a bad idea.
