another clutch problem

Today when I went to start the car up there was zero feel in the clutch until the very end. The car still starts and can shift gears, but the throw out bearing is making noise and the clutch vibrates in the car. It has about 1200 miles on the clutch. Anybody know what happened?

So I just went to the shop where I had the clutch replaced before. As soon as the tech got it he knew something was wrong. What they told me was that there is a defect in the TOB or pressure plate and that they will replace the clutch again for free because it is still under warranty. I'm not completely convinced that the first tech didn't jack up the first install, but as long as it gets done right in the end it isn't a huge deal. It just figures because my mom is in the middle of a move to another state and I'm leaving for college in a week, so there is a bit more headache than there should be.

Well, good thing they are honoring the warranty. Might have been a bad install, might have been a defective part. You should have the car back by now or tomorrow. A good tech with air tools should be able to do a clutch pretty quick. Me and a bud did the whole trans/clutch of my 91 fox in 3 hours flat with a lift.

They can't get it on until Monday. The tech will be a different guy this time.
