feels like you're all excited and yellin' at me Othniel~ take it down a notch man...startin' harsh my mellow- Sadly, sounds like a cracked bellhousing which is where the clutch pivot resides, the pin is hardened, so we can't blame that and I do believe they used the case of the bell housing for support of the clutch mechanism...probably not the mechanic's fault, but a defect in the dodge casting, take it back to the Dodge dealership and tell them "this isn't normal, inspect" Yes, replace the bell housing. as far as your alarm, what it's out of control, don't have the fob to control it? just want to get rid of it? 'became active', is this a bad thing? not sure what you're getting at here~
