Sounds like the throwout bearing from the symptoms you describe. Cheap part, but not cheap to get to.

That said, if you DIY with a friend it's a single day project.

And 68,000 miles, I wouldn't do anything else while in there other than maybe the pivot pin. I would use an OE BMW bearing.

Might not hurt to do the CSB and guibo while you're have the shaft dropped.
