Not tightening all the bolts properly - over or under tightening - can be a possible cause.
As gpa suggested, you can get it checked again. In long run the problem may spread to the gearbox.

I got it done from the A.S.S here. The clutch was very hard and was giving me leg pains. The guys said it would be the pressue plate and told me that they have changed the clutch kit under warranty. DOnt know what all the "kit" includes. But i am not very happy ater the change. Though the hardness has reduced to a certain extent i think i can feel something turning under the engine. This sound goes away when i press the clutch hence i am assuming it is the clutch plate that i am hearing. The sound is not very loud and could be considered normal (by anyone other than a fiat user ). But this was not the way it was earlier and i am not very happy.
After some running (especially after the car gets hot enough) when i take my leg off the clutch i can hear the noise of something disengaging under the engine. Not sure if i should take it back to the A.S.S and let them do their xperiments by keeping the car with them for a few days or should i go to a local workhop.
Or Probably should i just forget all this and drive it as long as it runs??
