I have a 2011 wrangler 6 speed with 18k miles. I have recently just had the throw out bearing replaced under warranty. I asked if they would be able to just do a whole clutch job, and they said they'd check to see of anything was wearing. (typical dealer) Now, just about 500 miles later, there is a noticeable amount of "leeway" in my clutch. I have to press is down almost halfway before I start to get much resistance. I started noticing it the other day, and it's been getting slowly worse. Clutch also seems like it may be catching a tad but later in the release every day. Does anyone have an answer? Should I call and explain to the dealer what's going on? My thought are that I will need a whole new clutch, but not sure. That's why I'm posting. Any info would be awesome!

There should be an adjustment somewhere. I've had to do it on other vehicles, but my JK is an auto so I have no specifics for it.

Check your brake fluid reservoir, if it's low you could have a cracked or leaking hydraulic hose or your slave cylinder calved.

The jk is a non adjustable hydraulic clutch unfortunately

Most likely it's the slave cylinder. They could have reinstalled it weird or it could be broken
