what type of clutch kit did you purchase. dealer or aftermarket?
aftermkt for sure, I bought the car not runninhg with a busted clutch. came with the clutch kit in the boots , fitted good and ia smooth take up, had a hassle getting clutch to operate thogh, pressure plate a liiole lower than ogiginal, 2-3mm had to adjust the secondary slave cyclinder to contect to the clutch lever
iv seen badaftermarket b4 they just don't work well in this car. try readjusting and bleed hydraulic system again
