gearbox noise after replacing clutch

I have a 2000 UK turbo and about 3 or 4 weeks ago I had the clutch replaced and the fly wheel skimmed, when I got the car back the clutch pedal was extremely light that it felt more like a cable clutch which I could not feel the bite, also there was a lot of vibration that sounded like the engine was about to fall out when doing clutch control to park up or move very slowly.

I spoke to the mechanic and he said it should return back to normal within a few hundred miles. Over 200 miles later no difference.

I told him it should feel heavier than that and I have had clutches done in the past and never had this issue.

He asked me what to do, I suggested that I would contact a subaru specialist.
I spoke to Alyn at AS Performace about the clutch being light and the vibration and he stated he always changes the clutch fluid on all clutch jobs.

I got the mechanic to change the clutch fluid which he did for free and within 20 miles the clutch pedal returned to normal and the vibration is no where near as bad.

Now I have this Sh noise that sounds similar to brake pads rubbing when you rotate a wheel by hand coming from the gearbox but only in 4th gear when driving casually and lifting the clutch up slowly, but the noise goes away once the clutch pedal is fully engaged (up).

Any ideas?
Is the prop shift balanced and the mechanic has put it back in the wrong bolt holes as in it must go back in the exact rotation/bolts/holes as it came out?

Thanks in advanced
