I have a 2010 mazda 3 hatchback 11,000 miles that has had the clutch petal replaced and now needs the clutch master cylinder replace-is that normal for a car with so little miles.

    CLUTCH MASTER IS A HYD. PART AND CAN GO BAD AT ANY TIME BUT THE CLUTCH PEDAL SHOULD LAST FOREVER. MAYBE THE PEDAL WASN'T THE PROBLEM THE 1ST TIME. SOMETHING SOUNDS FISHY

    The clutch makes a clicking sound and feels like it sticks a little, could there be something more wrong with the transmission.

    COULD BE A THROW OUT BEARING THAT IS DRY AND STICKING ON THE FRT VEARING RETAINER.IF THERE IS AN INSP HOLE LOOK INSIDE AND MAYBE SPRAY ALITTLE WD 40 ON THE SHAFT AND SEE IF THAT HELPS THE STICKING AND NOISE
