While driving, the clutch pedal will vibrate if slightly pressed down. But if it's fully down or up, the vibration stops.
This also produce vibrating noise from the clutch pedal. The vibration is only felt on that pedal and not all of the car. Could it be the flywheel gone bad?

I asked the local dealer and said it could be the flywheel. Is that also possible? Issue started after my front brakes started sticking a few months back.

I'd think it be more of a clutch problem like a bent disc but unti you remove it at this mileage put up with it until the clutch goes. It may straighten out after a while.

The dealer has successfully resolved the issue. Apparently my flywheel was worn out unevenly and was thus causing the issue. They also replaced the clutch, clutch cover, release bearing.

The car is ok now but have only a problem. When pressing down the clutch pedal, it feels a bit stiff half way down and then feels normal again. I have also noticed that while in gear and releasing the clutch pedal, I now need to let the pedal go up about half way before the gears will have contact.

Is there something that can be done for that? It was working fine before.

If u have a hydraulic clutch then check your fluid. Also the dealer may have put a stronger clutch in it. If not happy take it back they should guarantee their work.

My car is fitted with cable clutch. They have tried to adjust the pedal height but still it engages to high.

I have seen on the internet that you can adjust the pedal engagement by adjusting the nut behind the clutch pedal but im worried that it will wear my clutch quicker and reduce the free-play. Can doing that actually damage my clutch?

Mostly the clutch gets damaged form riding it with your foot and not any free playin the pedal. Take it back to where you go tit fixed if not happy sounds like you aren't
