Fight with them, it's under 5k kms, so you can still fight for defective clutch. Even though you ride your clutch.

Also, only clutch plate is not covered under warranty. All other components such as pressure plate, cable, thrust bearings are covered under warranty.

Congratulations!

If it was a new, badly-taught driver, it just might be possible it is their fault--- but you have the experience of making a clutch last a long time. It is jsut so unlikely to have been your driving causing the problem.
