Happy thanksgiving and thanks for reminding me the misunderstanding.
You will need to check the whole cluch assembly,
The clutch assembly consists of the flywheel, the clutch disc, the clutch pressure plate, the throwout bearing/clutch release bearing and fork, the hydraulic system and the pedal.
The hydraulic susyem was leaking, but you fixed that.
But sometime, one problem lead to another.
I suspect the trouwout bearing'
it transmits the movement of the clutch linkage and release fork to the pressure plate. It outer race depresses the pressure plate fingers or trust ring and rotate with the pressure plate when the the clutch pedal is depressed. This action causes the pressure plate to release it clamping force on the clutch disc. The inner race of the release bearing is pressed into a collar, wich slides back and forth over the transmission's front bearing retainer.
The clutch release bearing should be checked by turning the bearing while applying force in the direction of rotation.
