Clutch Squeal 1996 RA

Hi guys, I would just like to say hello to everyone on here as I'm new.
Straight to the point, I bought my first impreza in October last year a 1996 RA. It has now developed an annoying squeal from the clutch every time I pull away. I popped the engine out a couple of weeks ago and replaced the release bearing and greased everything up which stopped the squeak but now it's starting to return. When I put the new bearing into the little cage bit that holds it in and put it back into the clutch I found it was really lose and turned easily and made a squeak when I turned it by hand so I put loads of grease on it. Could it be this bearing cage and can you buy them if so? The clutch is a paddle clutch but not sure who by.
Thanks Rusty

welcome to the site have a look at the dia first dia number 8 the clutch release fork you mean is it? if so yes you can buy them from the dealers also while you at it might be a good time to change clutch if needed and spigot bearing that sits in the flywheel http://opposedforces.com/parts/impre...llustration_1/

I changed my clutch awhile back and greased up all the points in that release fork but over time the grease dries up and squeals a bit when you push clutch to floor its a low noise and wouldnt worry about it but with yours is it very loud?

Yeah it's really loud! It's when the clutch is starting to bite as I'm pulling away.
