I've got an 08 WRX, and since the day I've had it, (44,000 miles on it at that point) the clutch pedal has been has been somewhat tough to depress, which i have read is somewhat common. My clutch doesn't disengage until just above the floor...is this adjustable? I can't tell that its noticably worse that when i bought the car, but I'm going to be moving from southern Colorado to the Philadelphia area for 4 years for optometry school and I have the means (probably) to replace the clutch before I go. I won't be moving until March-April, but i know that sometime while I'm out there I'll need to do my timing belt, etc as well.
So i guess my question is, should I just wait for the clutch to get bad and then pay to have it done? I don't drive the car that hard. I have done a few dumb things in it before i knew better, but now i'm very cautious with starts, etc. It has just over 86K on it now on what i'm sure is a stock clutch. I know its too soon to do the timing belt, but when i'm neck deep in school, i'm not going to have the time to do it, and i don't know what my financial situation will be during that time frame.
Any advice is appreciated here. I have never been fond of paying someone to work on my car/truck/motorcycle because i like doing the work myself, but maybe this is different.
