I have a very similar situation but its opposite.  Its very intermittent
problem.  Sometimes when i depress the clutch all i feel is a "freeplay"
clutch with no resistance.  Then i cannot get into gear at all its as if the
release lever isnt moving.  Most times when i depress the clutch the system
works fine.  Any ideas?
