I'll try to post an updated video of the noises and slipping my transmission has been experiencing for the last week or so (severely worse than before).

But I'm very close to just purchasing these parts and doing the repair myself:

Note: The old clutch might be shipped to Michigan with a big "FU" written on it... or through one of the dealership's windows. I haven't really decided yet. When questioned, I'll deny everything - because "Why would I need a new clutch? It's working 'as expected.'"

EDIT: I'm not actually going to do the latter... I think.
