New clutch makes whirring sand scrapey sound

I bought the clutch and it works great, but when under load (changing gear), it gives off a sandy, scrapey sound. garage thinks it needed a bearing replaced at the same time - and are happy to remedy if so.
if so is something along the lines of a Clutch release bearing in the link below?
many thanks for time and help
Paul Cunningham - if you are out there - it's on the engine I bought from you

It could be that the splines that slide in & out of the central part need greasing. This needs to be done sparingly, with a specific type of grease. I usually use the same stuff I apply to the backs of brake discs, and about as sparingly! If it is this, it might save a complete dismantling of the entire mechanism.

Didn't they change the release bearing, too? A clutch kit always comes with a release bearing.
