Obviously this is the noise that is supposed to "go away" after 1000 miles or whenever the "green clutch" wears in, but I don't see that happening. So if my clutch was worn enough that they had to replace the clutches after 20,000 miles and it still makes the noise, won't they just be replacing another clutch at 40,000 miles?
I'm sorry to hear that.

One point is that clutch assemblies are being replaced because they are usually contaminated by an oil leak. In other words, your clutches most likely were not replaced simply because of wear.
