What causes a vibrating clutch?
All possible reasons are related to each other, as same as the components of the system is connected with each other such as the flywheel which is a round metal that is connected to the engine crankshaft thus when the engine runs, flywheel turns,  then there is the pressure plate that is press the clutch disc along the flywheel which allowing the transfer of engine power to the transmission. By pressing the clutch pedal the clutch is release, as the clutch is release any looseness on the three parts mentioned could cause wobbling of the parts that can then transfers to the clutch pedal which can be felt as vibration.
