I had 180,00 on mine and the throwout bearing started making noise. I did not take any chances and bought a entire clutch kit. I took it apart and the old clutch disk was almost the exact same thickness as the new one. I ended puting all of the kit in the car but I find it odd that a clutch would wear out in only 70,000 miles unless the original driver did not know how to drive a stick. Maybe it is a rear seal but look for signs of oil at the bottom of the bell housing. The clutch is easy to install if you work on cars but try to check for the oil leaks and also make sure you clutch slave cylinder has not signs of leaking.
