Pressure plate worn

So i took my car into a local shop about a a rattle coming from my clutch pedal and they tell me my pressure plate is worn and i need a new clutch. Problem is i just replaced the clutch about 10k miles ago. So my question is can failure to properly install a clutch correctly lead to premature wear on the pressure plate

If that is exactly what they told you I would find another shop. That the pressure plate is worn in 10k miles so as to need replacement is very unlikely; and that they could determine that without pulling the transmission is damned near impossible.

Are your sure they didn't say/mean "clutch disc"?

No they said pressure plate. And it's not the same shop who replaced the clutch 10k miles ago. So your saying to know the exact problem they need to drop the tranny completely to find out?

Unless it has self-destructed (is is a Spec clutch?) I cannot imagine how they were able to pinpoint a defective pressure plate by peeking in through the inspection port...

I would go back to the same place who installed the clutch, and see if they are willing to work with you.

I would still have it checked by the shop that put it in you might have a warranty. I know my shop offers a 12 month 12k warr on All the work we do.
