Before you start yanking big heavy pieces out, make sure the clutch 
hydraulics are up to snuff.  Signs of needing a clutch job are generally 
slippage and nasty smells, what you have sounds like a failure to fully 
disengage, which is usually clutch hydraulics,  If you're not getting 
hydraulic fluid all over your feet, suspect the slave cylinder.
