2012, 2.2l Diesel, clutch problem

Need help please. The clutch pedal of 2.2l diesel, 2 wheel drive does not release back to top. It will release to 3/4 and will then pop up after lifting your foot off the pedal or you might have to lift it with your toe when cold. Stuggled few times to get car in gear when starting in morning, thereafter operation is normal except pedal not releasing fully. Clutch seems to be working perfectly - no slipping or other problems.
Car has done 140 000km and is in perfect working order except clutch pedal. Kia dealer wants to replace clutch including flywheel at high cost. what are my options to check what the actual problem is before I replace the clutch?

Welcome to the forum - a word of advice, if that user name is your regular email address you should consider sending a PM to Admin requesting a user name change, because there's many undesireables that harvest such details from public forums and web sites.

If your car uses a clutch cable, it could be a sign that the cable is gone, but could be a problem with the clutch pressure plate and/or release bearing.

If its hydraulic, then its more likely a problem with the clutch pressure plate and/or release bearing, which is a bigger costly job.
