Default Clutch appears to work but car doesn't move.

I was pulled into my driveway too slowly and killed the engine in 3rd gear. I restarted the engine, released the clutch and all I hear is a high speed grinding noise. I tried other gears with the same results. I pushed Blue into the garage. Any ideas?

Shift fork problems are only an issue on the 6-speed manuals, AFAIK. I've not heard of it on a 5-speed. And the Turbo S is the only NB with the 6-speed.

Blue is going into the shop next week. I'll let you what happened.

Here's what happened. The splines in the clutch plate stripped out.
New dual mass clutch/pressure plate cost just under $1000. Add another $400 for labor.
