Default Clutch Life

Just curious, how long has your clutch lived? I am at 130,000 and my clutch still works. There is some weird metal on metal action with the clutch release, only when it's really hot outside and I am stuck in traffic, so I am about to pull the transmission to check it all out.

My 2001 Outback had 165,000km's on her when the HG started leaking(trade in for my Fozzy). It was a manual and had 93,900km's when I bought it in Dec. '03. As far as I knew it had the original clutch. It was still shifting well when I traded her in. It has a lot to do with the life of the clutch that you shift smoothly. I'd say maybe a fresh change of the tranny fluid should fix your problem.

I got 173k on the original clutch of my 98 Impreza before I sold it, so you can get a lot of miles out of the stock clutch.

Thanks for the replies. I would imagine my disc still has life on it. I am just a little worried about the grinding. I'm thinking maybe it's the pivot arm inside the transmission. I have already greased the pivot at the slave cylinder, but that's about all I can see to grease.
