Re: Clutch Problem

It could be the clutch release bearing / throwout bearing as you suggest . Could even be a finger on the diaphragm pressure plate or pilot bushing .

Re: Clutch Problem

The clutch was replaced about 2 years ago....so it is bad already?

Re: Clutch Problem

All depends on the driver and how car is driven and used , certainly possible .

Re: Clutch Problem

Looks like you will have to pull the box out to see what's causing the problem .
