To determine the reasons that cause the problem, the transmission assembly must be opened up. It is very difficult to determine the real cause of the problem without looking inside the transmission. usually,  cause if there is a clutch pedal vibration when the clutch pedal is depressed a loose clutch disc, pressure plate, or flywheel is the problem. These three components are somewhat connected to each other.

The clutch disc is fitted in between the pressure plate and the flywheel, the purpose of the clutch is to transmit or cuts off the power produced from the engine to the transmission.

The flywheel is a round plate that is coupled to the engine crankshaft, the crankshaft is the one that makes the flywheel runs. When the car is in gear the pressure plate presses the clutch disc against the flywheel this allows the engine power to be transmitted to the transmission. Back to the problem, if the clutch pedal is depressed the clutch pedal is released in this case if there is looseness on any of the above-mentioned parts the parts will wobble and that wobbling will be transmitted on the clutch pedal thus creates clutch pedal vibration.
