throwout bearing warranty?

I just relaced my slave and clutch. Now it rattles like a diamondback. I had the dealer do a courtesy assessment and they say it is the throwout bearing, which is integrated into the slave, which I just bought from clutchcity. They say they will send me a new TB, which is like $10. They are willing to do nothing to help out with labor. I did it myself, so I can't complain to the mechanic. Should I push this any further with clutchcity? I really don't want to pull the tranny again.

truck has 66k. The new slave and throwout bearing is brand new. Clutchcity tried to tell me that the throwout bearing wore out because I didn't replace the master when I replaced the slave. How's that for BS. Besides it didn't wear out. It rattled from the getgo.

Since I work on all my stuff........I'd just drop the trans, replace that slave cyl....again. Its a faulty design and made is France.....since it's made there, its a POS. My 10,000 mile slave has a loud throwout bearing, but it don't bother me.

Yeah, I did this one myself, but I hated it and don't really want to do it again. I guess I can live with the rattle until it leaks again, then I will have no choice except to drop the tranny again.

The problem is I kinda want to sell it cause I have a 1 year old, and wouldn't mind something bigger.
