    i had my clutch pedal snap lastnight so got it welded like most and bought a new clip.. where the bar goes into the clip... i wasnt sure how to do this so i placed the clip into the housing on the pedal arm first and fitted the clutch pedal then pressed on it..

    would this be correct or should i have fitted the bar into the clip any other way?

    I dont have any faults after fitting however I wasnt sure how far to screw in the sensor so is this important that it may not be set correct?

    bloody clutch pedal!

    I did mine a few weeks ago by following this excellent guide and just got round to putting the big spring back on using cable ties.

    My problem now is that the bar doesnt seem to fit into the plastic clip bit so there is a danger of the bar slipping out and me loosing clutch again. I've tried to adjust the sensor that screws into the pedal so that it acts as a stop but the threads have all gone so it's not holding very well and i now have a rediculously long pedal travel. Is this normal?

    Shoul the bar be stuck into the plastic bit once it's al back together and is the plastic pluger switch supposed to act as a stop for the pedal comming up too high??

    Any help greatly appreciated!!!

    I had the same problem and followed the guide which was excellent and saved me having to pay somebody. mate had a clip, other mate has a welder so it worked out i didnt spend a penny. Was a nightmare of a job though what with losing my temper trying to fiddle about the peddles and now havin a bust back and neck but its all working 100% now.


    Not mentioned in this thread i dont think but when fitting the clip , put the clip onto the wee rod and ball end and then put it into the pedal, as it wont go in afterwards all that easily.

    Another thing i done that messed up was when weldin a bit of weld went through the gap and prevented the clip going in but was able to chisel it out.

    Mechanic i know keeps clips and pedals in his tool box as he says it only a matter of time before he will have another one needin fixed.

    When i phoned the local Seat dealer and got the Seat parts desk the guy that answered the phone said he cudnt find the clip i was talking about and that he didnt know much about Seats.. Err why the feck you on the Seat parts desk, his solution was to tell me to ring another branch as they "might" know
     
  6. Quality, i tried removing it last night and gave up. glad i logged back onto this today coz this has just made my weekend. Legend guys, cheers for the help. still thinking of going back to the beemers tho. iv had nothing but problems with the ibiza. not engine wise but just general mechanicals... Anyone wanna buy my 51 plate cupra R with 51k on the clock?... im thinkin M3 or M5 next..
     
  7. has anyone got a picture of "the white clip" as i think the garage that tried to fix my problem may have lost it.... cheers

    any tips on how to get the white clip into the push rod, i cant get mine to stay. I put the clip over the rod but cant get it ti stay!!! when i push the pedal down onto it the rod just moves back so the pedal isnt putting enough pressure on it!!! Pls help its driving me mad!!!
     
  9. finally after searching the internet for a "white clip", the guy from the Seat garage, Arnold Clark in Edinburgh informed me they had it and that it would only cost 70p. So instead of trying to get to him for it, he's sending in over first thing in the morning to a local garage, 5min walk from my house. RESULT!! and here was me thinking of ordering it from a breakers down south and they insisted i bought the whole pedal and it was gona cost me 35quid. Cheers lads!

    HELP!

    Though the guide on here has been great, my friend (I'm crap with cars) is struggling with this.

    Basically, everything has gone back in (locating that spring was a b*tch) but the pedal, once depressed, isn't coming back up fully.

    Any ideas?

    Help!

    Hi all-think this has just happened to me tonight, couldnt have happened at a worse time or place. I think the problems are as described by all of you- the clutch pedal's stuck down to the floor, but can be prised back up. But when depressed again there is no spring action to suppress it back into place? Does this sound like the snapped welds described? Any help would be greatly appreciated asap!Ross

    EPC warning light.

    My clutch pedal snapped last weekend, ive since took it off rewelded it and refitted it, that spring is a nightmare lol!
    The problem now is that the EPC warning light has come on. According to the handbook (page 2.24) this indicates "accelerator pedal faults"! Ive looked all around the pedals checked all the cables and connectors etc but can see nothing wrong:( Ive tried dissconnecting the batttery to clear the fault but this didnt work (light went off and came back on about 5min later)! Any ideas what the problem could be as all the book says is take it to seat?

    any help would be much appreciated.

    oh yea forgot to mention car seems to drive fine,accelerates like normal etc.

    thanks.
     
  17. my problem is now, i fitted the white clip to the rod and inserted it into the pedal. forgot about the spring. any help as to getting the spring into place as im at my wits end and ready for throwing it away. the car drives fine but the pedal hangs slightly hence needing the spring. cheers

    spring re-fitting

    cuprar stuart - to re-fit the spring i clamped it down fully in a vice and then cable tied each side (use good ones or they may suddenly snap!!!) im not saying that this makes it an easy job but it helps quite alot. try pushing the clutch down about halfway, locate the spring and then cut the cable ties. you can also sort of reach the spring from the top, if you put your arm through under the steering wheel (where the fuses are).
    you've just gotta keep at it, took me about 5minutes to get the pedal back on and about 45 to do the spring lol.
    hope this helps.

    Anyone else had the EPC light come on after re-fitting their clutch pedal??or is it just me:(

    just welded my pedal box up after breaking on the weekedn, put it all back together with spring and the clutch is now working but the spring is clicking each time you take your foot off the clutch pedal. I have removed the spring to establish if it is the spring making the noise which it was. I now dont have a spring in place but the clutch is working fine and there are no nasty noises, so do i need a spring in place or not, and if so is there a modified part (any part numbers) many thanks
