... and I believe that the fact that most cars have the plastic throw-out
bearing guide sleeve, which tends to wear and cause drag is a contibutor to
the problem as well.  I couldn't believe how easy the clutch became on the
4kSQ after I replaced it!  That steel replacement sleeve should ensure that
one contributor to difficult clutch operation will not be coming back ...
