    I had the clutch pedal clicking syndrome! i did do a thread about it a few months ago. It was very annoying :rifle:

    All i did was put a big blob of grease on a fitch brush and grease the ball on the end of the slave cylinder that attaches to the pedal and the spring.

    The noise went immediatly!!! and its not returned!!!:)

    So far so good!

    hi a had this problem before with my golf sunk to the floor clips snapped ,bought clips and still sunk to the floor ,turned out it wasa weld on the pedal that had snapped which let the pedal move further than it should which in turn broke the bracket ,look for that as clutch its self seems a bit much ,worth a look any way because that was what happened to me ,got a guy to weld it for 20 quid

    Just happened to me, but i have oil pi55in out the bottom of my car! I couldn't really see where it was comin from. The good ol AA bloke said it could be slave cylinder, is this external or internal?

    Easy fix for the known pdeal problem, once the plate has snapped off you can use a m10 nut/bolt and m8 nut/bolt to permanantly fix this,

    As you look at the top of the pedal you will see a 10mm hole at a vertical angle, put the m10 bolt through the hole from the top and bolt the nut tight so it holds on the metal plate, This will stop the plunger on the master cylinder shooting through the pedal,

    Now, if left like this, when you take your foot off the pedal the plunger fall out as the pedal returns too high, Get the m8 bolt and thread the nut half way down the bolt, ( you will need two m8 nuts)
    In the pedal box braket above the pedal you will see a 8mm hole, put the bolt through this hole so the head of the bolt is facing the pedal, put the nut on the other side, with the two nuts on this bolt you can adjust how far the pedal returns. adjust this until the plunger no longer falls out,

    Job done,

    Hope that helps guys, I'm jst looking for an LCR and will be keeping these nuts and bolt in the tool kit.

    Hi people.
    Clutch pedal fell flat to the floor last night. when the AA bloke eventually showed up, he said the 'release bearing' had gone. He put about a litre of brake fluid in the master cylinder which just pumped straight out on to the floor! Master cylinder has only recently been done, so do you think it IS the release bearing, or is there a possibility this could be a 'white plastic clip' scenario?!!
    Have done 92k on original clutch, so perhaps I'd do just as well to get a new one anyway.

    if the fluids pumping through then its a hydraulic leak, if its leaking from the gearbox then is more than likely the slave cylinder which is gearbox out I believe

    Taking it to the garage in the morn so hopefully they can shed some light on the matter. The AA guy did say the gearbox would have to come out but not sure what he was on about with the release bearing:shrug:

The aa guy knew what it was straight away said it was a common problem, he put a plastic clip on their off a ford that got me home till I got to tesco an bang the clip broke for the second time in the same day. Next day seen that hole in the peddle went to halfords an did what daveRb5 did an just like new, better than tha 2mm price of metal holding it :)

    My clutch dropped to floor a while ago, November, just after i bought it. Anyway, a foot behind it to lift it back up and it was back to norm. Its happened thrice since then. Low and behold, in December, a strange white clip turned up on the floor, but clutch fine. I kept the white clip in the ashtray. And only now, have I put two and two together!! Guess where I'll be taking a peek tmoz dinner!!

    Question: This M10/M8 nut and bolt solution. What length of bolts are required? I'm assuming the M10/8 is the width. I'll be feeling for any leaks down there too! The costs are shooting up if the slave, so here's hoping!

    I think I used an m8 either one will fit but you will prob have to take the spring out behind the pedal or plunger thing will keep slipping out, hard to describe nut you will when you get under their lol

    yea I was to but it's pretty solid when you put tha bolt in wouldn't keep it as a perm thing tho gotta get a new one Friday off here for £35 I think. Not much luck with it like me lol. I hit a house brick on the road snapped the splitter an it managed to go through the vent an hit the gearbox, Over Xmas I had an ignition coil go while doing my Xmas shopping an had to get home on 3 cylinders then the clutch pedal snapped 2days later then my outer cv joint had went an now got my mot lol. I still love it though wouldn't change it for anything. Everone is really good on here though to be fair anything you want to know just find a thread or ask a question someone will answer
