Hello All:

Here is an update about my problem.

After further tests, I noticed that if i floor the clutch pedal (if I step on it), it is a lot easier to shift into the first gear, still not what I remember though. I can feel an extra resistance in the last moment.

I did the wire test. I got something around 10mm, considering my measurement errors, I concluded that clutch hydraulics are fine.

I decided to remove the pressure plate. As soon as I pulled back the transmission, I can see some pressure plate fingers are taller than the others. I think this is my problem. After I remove the pressure plate off the car, fingers looks very normal.

I will try to get a replacement, even better, slightly better quality ones.

I will update you later when I had chance to put it back together.
