    i worry about this now everytime i drive.

    does anyone have a picture of where it snaps and the weld needed to repair it? for the few quid it costs to repair it seems sensible to do it now, dont you think?!

    i dont have a picure but when u look on the clutch pedal its pretty obvious where it needs welding. if you have the spare cash to have it weleded up now then for peice of mind i probably would, as its not a case of IF yours fails its WHEN ( so it seems from amount of people having the same thing)

    mines all sorted now cost me £75 all in at a local garage to get it welded up bit steep i thought but just glad its sorted for work tomorrow :D

    My clutch pedal clicks everytime its put down, I'm concerned incase its beginning to fracture. Does this clicking normally happen?

    Mine went today, it was one press soft, the next it's on the floor and its not coming back up. So it was little black ibiza on the back of big yellow recovery truck.

    Anyway as I'm a busy busy ******* and love to complain I thought that now this has happened to me i will be writing to SEAT to get some answers (I read a thread a while back where someone wrote to them but the response they got was poor) but i am a tryer so i think i'll give it a go.

    Anyway what i thought was if we could list everyone who's had this problem, their name, reg no, and how much it cost them to repair it might have more of an impact???

    Good idea or not??

    Also could I refer to SCN and it's members in the letter?? Mr Administrator??.

    Thoughts please. Details could be P.M.ed

    Well its quite simple to fix and if you snap the white clip just go to your nearest scrap yard coz the clip from a mk 2 ibiza is the same as ive found out lol :lol:

    Right i managed to get my pedal off today.. Took a while and didnt appreciate the steering wheel in the chest lol.

    Anyway i cant believe how crap the original seat welds are :confused: not surprising its snapped really!

    Anyway took a couple of pics so people know what to look out for. Took the pedal to my local mechanics and they welded it up for me :) He wouldnt even let me give him any money for it :D

    I cant actually get the pedal back on right now though so am gonna be making another thread shortly for help :confused:

    Will just show the pics now :

    My clutch pedal went on Tuesday morning. Got the car back tonight £75 out of pocket.

    Had a VW Touran TDI 6spd 7 seater whilst it was in getting fixed, i abused it horrendously. It was slow and noisy, but now even noiser :)

    Isnt actually that hard to get the pedal off following this guide :)

    Hardest part is getting it back on though.. Im still driving about without the big spring in place :(

    Before the pedal went i dont think i had a spring!

    As now its all been re-fitted with the spring, the pedal has much more resistance and pushes back much more. Takes a bit of getting used to.

    its a bit of a pain as its dificult to get your hamds up there, just need patience and a bit of force, itl go in the end, it might help if you take the drivers seat out to give a lot more room to work, if you havnt done that already.
