Bingo, this is your problem. I bet you have a lightweight clutch with the longer throw-out yoke on it.

My car had the exact problem you described. I changed everything on the outside (pedal box rebuild, cable & omega spring) nothing worked. Had my engine out last year and noticed significant scrubbing on the guide tube the yoke slides over.
I put a good amount of antisieze on the guide before bolting the trans up.

Problem instantly disappeared!

btw: I have the Sachs Sporting clutch (alum clutch and flywheel)
