Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
What normally causes this issue to happen is the clutch release bearing is starting to fail which results in the problem that you are having, this is a fairly common issue and requires the gearbox to be removed in order to change this bearing.
