Clutch Problems

My car has recently had a couple of episodes where the clutch pedal all of a sudden locks up and I can barely push in the clutch far enough to change gears. I have no clue why it's doing this but it's getting really annoying and unsafe. The video below is the noise that it makes whenever I push in the clutch pedal.

If anyone has any insight into this please let me know ASAP. I drive close to 500 miles a week for work and having my car not running is not an option.

My only guess is the throw-out bearing. There is a rumble to the clutch pedal when pressing it but it's not terrible.

cant go wrong with exedy either. a bit firmer then stock. bites when it needs too.

when you get a clutch kit you'll get the pressure plate and throw out bearing with it. so everything you need to install to make it like new again.

im with Smaay. something inside is boogered up. and it does sound like a finger or 2 is broke or effed up by the way its acting. and it depends on the shop/area what they would charge. a good set of sockets and open end wrenches, jack and jack stands you can do it in your garage/driveway/gravel lot in a good day. if your any kind of mechanically inclined.

i think there was a write up on how to r&r a clutch. so you'll have pics and such too.
meh, hand tools are good for you. you gain a feel for how tight things should be instead of zipping an air gun on everything. this way your not stripping stuff out and getting to wild on it. make sure if you get a used clutch you get the clutch alignment tool with it.

i bought a used clutch from a member on here. was used for like 2 miles until they decided it was the tranny. got a good deal. clutch worked as should. keep an eye out.
