Nope but I only have 6500 miles. I haven't had a clutch with issues in several years but that does sound like the release bearing. Definitely take it in.
I hope you didn't skip the first oil change on your mazda2 dude!Yea, haven't even had the first oil change yet. It sounds alot like my friend's Evo right after he upgraded the clutch. I never did understand why it made a howling noise all the time when he would start off in first gear.
