Hi .

When you have the clutch out you will see from the score marks on the plate and pressure plate , and the springs in the clutch plate will be lose .

Don't get mixed up from the newer 2006 Mazda 6 that has this simula problem
this is a different cases where they have still not rectified that problem .

Your problem is not the same ,
