Clutch Pedal Snapped. GUIDE

Discussion in 'Mk3 Ibiza Guides (6K2) 2000-2002' started by cupra_matt, Nov 21, 2006.

  1. This happened to me last week, as soon as it broke i knew exactly what it was. I followed the instructions on this thread, it was easy getting it off and only cost me £2 to get it welded up at a local garage. But was a pain in the a*se to refit.

    I would recommend anyone who hasn't had this problem to get it welded up as you never know when it'll go. Luckily for me i wasn't driving fast and i was near my house when it broke.

    Spoke to SEAT today who basically said its not a fault with the weld at all its apparently to do with either the clutch bearing wearing out or the clutch cable seizing.

    Yeah....OK SEAT, how long did it take you to think of that? heheh

    Mine has just snapped. Its looking like it'll be into the New Year before I can get someone to fix it. Called Seat, they said it'd need a whole new pedal box and it'd cost £580 + VAT.

    I've got it booked into a local garage, they're able to do it next week but the guy used to be the foreman at the local VW dealer so knows what he's doing........hopefully. Its going to be a charge for 4 hours labour. If I had more time I'd of stripped it down myself.

  8. Just get the pedal rewelded you shouldn't need to buy a complete new pedal unless it's completely shagged.

    Mine went 80 miles from home last night [:@]

    Any tips of how to get the clip off to get the pedal out? We've had 2 people trying, but still can't get the bu66er off! :wtf:

    Also, is there a link to the ELSA images or anything?

    Don't panic, sussed it. The end of the clip needs 'tweaking'.

    Getting it welded tomorrow and back on the wagon tomorrow all being well!

    Great thread, saved me a few quid! :clap:

    Can someone please re-post any pics they have of the pedal as the original links have gone down. I need to show a mate so he can take mine out and do it next weekend

    TIA, Rob

    Took mine off and got a mate to weld it for me today before it actually broke to save the hassle of being stuck with no clutch somewhere. Bit of a bitch to get the spring back in but we found it easiest to keep it compressed using cable ties and then cut them once back in as suggested by other people in this thread.

    To be fair the welding on my pedal didn't look all too bad so I don't think mine was a high risk but at least now I have total peace of mind. Pics below:
