Only about 20km on this clutch major failure with multiple springs,
The clutch itself looks very new and fresh
What's the chance of refund from warranty?

Wow, looks like they were failing for a while before that one spring came out from its cradle, and probably locked you out of gear, yikes! That clutch looks worked!
If your gona try for a warranty, try not to show the heat checked flywheel in the back round lol. But seriously though, warranties on "wear" items are a tough battle to win. Maby an Exedy stage 1 clutch would be a better clutch for you next time. I hear those feel like stock, but are beefier on things like those springs. Or you can try a non-sprung clutch next installment. They have their own 'chatters' when engaging due to not having the springs, but they can take more abuse if that is your driving style.
I've seen this in my own Exedy stock replacement clutches before- they don't seem to like hard launches and burn outs as much as I do lol.

For info guys as I supply exedy oem clutches.

Exedy will request a buyer to send a clutch back to them and they will investigate it.
There is no guarantee of a replacement or refund depending on the outcome of their investigation.
Bear in mind this is the same procedure for most manufacturers not just exedy.
Furthermore I had been supplying oem exedy clutches to the civic cup guys as they had to be used as a control clutch for all participant's.
These clutches really do take some stick, and so far nobody I'm aware of have ever had any issues.
However none of us have done 20k on the clutches so i can't personally say how reliable they are at higher mileage.

Lee it's really unfortunate this has happened to you, I advise you to contact exedy direct and fight your case but only give them info they request.
Really hope all works out for you mate and keep us updated.

All the best pal
