Any competent trans shop should be able to replace a clutch for about 300-600 labor.

Wait... so something might not be broken but rather the DT is just disconnected? O.O

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
