You don't need a new one! you NEED ONE preferable thats new!

Auto boxes don't require a spigot bearing installed into the crank.

The manual input shaft inserts into the crank for support and thrust reasons.

The auto seats in the torque convertor.

Thus, needs one.

Buy a Genuine one.

very true, some from factory have the bearing.
however I'd replace it nonetheless as the grease would have come out.

highly unlikely it would,,,if you've ever seen the bearing for idlers on the engine,,the spigot is almost the same and goes in the end of the crank shaft....
