    Sounds like a mickey mouse clutch job to me, have you checked the gearbox oil by any chance?

    if it hasn't had an luk clutch fitted you might as well rip it out and throw it away, the cheap ones are absolute garbage, ask if the concentric slave cylinder was changed at the same time and if not then change it when you get the clutch re-done, again only use a genuine luk part, the cheap ones are poo poo.
