car had done 95k, maybe something to do with the gear selector part that needed changed? the release bearing obviously also have some scoring on it also, i was also able to pull it apart, friction plate was worn but still had a good few thousand miles left in it yet.

Don't know, but that's how they usually look, just before the bearing gives up most times.

yeah, you can often pull them apart even when new, depending which design they are.
