Clutch fork wobbling

I had been chasing a gritty feeling in my clutch pedal for some time now, I figured it was just a bad cable, even though it was recently replaced...

Well, it developed into a very irritating noise last night, and I had a friend depress the pedal while I watched the fork. It is wobbling inside the bellhousing!!! :banghead: :madder:

So now I get to do my first transmission drop and reattach the lever securely to the TOB...

I theorize that is shook loose because: The clutch was replaced in the summer of 02, when all the clutch shudder TSB's were going around :temper: ... I can easily get the new clutch to shudder, so I believe it's a new OEM clutch. I'm guessing the few times I accidentally made it shudder probably wiggled the fork loose...

So now I get to beg my family for Christmas money early, so I can get the XT operable again, so I can put the Leg back in the garage... :boohoo:

Heres an issue:

If you installed one of the clutch assemblies that was recalled as original equipment will Subaru replace it for free? I feel they should since it is a defective part.

The recently updated clutch assemblies (after May/June 2003) still judder, but not nearly as often.

It was not installed by Subaru, and I'm not 100% sure it even IS an OEM clutch. But with the way it shudders, it very well could be.

Nevertheless, since a shadetree mechanic did the work (and very sloppily I might add :mad:) I don't think they'll honor anything...
