+1! Clutches can and do fail! When you replace the disc you should also replace the pressure plate and throwout bearing while you are in there. I suppose just the disc replacement would work but why not replace the whole package, you have to remove it all anyway to get to the disc? The parts are not that expensive, its the labor. And then there is the flywheel, hope that doesn't need to be resurfaced too. While the M/T is a reliable package, it is not an inexpensive thing to repair, just less so than the A/T which is replaced vice repaired in most cases.
