It is probably not the throwout bearing unless it is dry/gummed up where it slides over the front bearing housing or at the fulcrum/ball stud where the fork pivots. The splines where the friction disc slides on the transmission input shaft can also become dry.

The variation in the force needed is more likely in the different spring tension and possibly the design of a different brand pressure plate between the two cars.

As stated, throwout bearings make noise when they are bad due to the pressure/load applied when depressing the clutch. If the clutch is not depressed and there is noise it can be a worn clutch fork or front input bearing in the transmission.

Good luck!!!
