    Think the spring clicks when its not quite in the right place,should be located in the little "dimple" at the bulkhead end not pushing up against the side. dont believe there's an aftermarket part or anything,havnt heard one mentioned anyway.just perservere untill its in the right place.

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

    Dealers just informed me that pedal box is cracked. im guessing this is a sign of the clutch pedal going or is this something different?

    They said new pedal box and 3 hours labour but if its just a case of getting it welded id def prefer that!

    cani confirm something please, am i right in thinking that the spring sits between a grove and a pokey out bit on the pedal? and there is nothing lese holding it in place.. im at my wits end with this, took it to a mechanic who thinks there is a part missing from it, i said i dont think there is, i think its just wedged between the 2 points?? a pic of the spring in situe and on its own would be a massive help. or does anyone have access to the diagrams the stealers have that show how everything goes together

    cheers

    Thanks jonesba so the pedal box problem seat are talking about is the crappy welds on the clutch?

    im not sure if its the same problem or not as i didnt got to SEAT to get it welded i just done it myself.the little sqare thing thats circled in the picture is on the side of the pedal arm and should have a little white clip in it,this holds the piston for the master cylinder, the problem is the welds snap and then the little white clip flies out the top which leaves you with no clutch as the master cylinder has nothing to push against. you should be able to see if you look "under" the dash,the fuse tray and other plastic cover under the steering wheel might have to be removed to get a good look at it tho.

    advice needed i have taken out the old pedal and replaced it with a new one it is sitting on the tube which runs along to the brake pedal and is ready to have the safety clips replaced at each end. i have 2 issues

    1 the spring has not been put back because it is evil but more importantly.

    2 the white clip is situated in the housing on the pedal and i am pushing it against the rod but the two bits will not connect.

    do i have to take it all apart again and join the clip to the rod then jiggle the pedal around it to make it fit or will it not join until the spring is back in place.

    ha ha the dreaded spring lol, thats the hardest bit! i put the white clip on the "rod" before putting it in the housing on the pedal, was a b***h to get on but i manged it by hand no tools required other than brute strength, i dont remember it being hard to then locate the clip in its hole.

    my pedal snaped and master cylinder bent

    hey fantastic guide, mine went at 4 o'clock 2day, and had MOT booked for 6, came on here, downloaded this guide and another for the master cylinder, over a cup of tea and 4 digestive biscuits i read the guides and got started, within half an hour i had the cluth master cylinder off, the pedal off, i then popped over to my looker stealer and got a new master cylinder and clip for the pedal, sadly missed MOT but shall have the pedal welded and all popped back togeather by tomorrow, was not the nightmare i thought it was and i would just like to thank all the guys on here for the guides and advice, sadly seat build quality leaves much to be desired but Seat drivers Camaraderie is 2nd to none.[​IMG]

    Guide i brilliant saved me money and welded at garage for free.
    So all back together in a few hours... I cant remember where the spring goes!?!
    I take it the white plastic end of the spring sits on top of the pedal but where the hell does the other end rest?
    Its compressed with cable ties and it looks like it should go straight up the the bottom of the dash but there is a circular whole??? Was there something there where the spring rested?

    Guys help please im fed up of walking everywhere.... a pic/photo?

    This happened to me last night, luckily I found a wifi connection and checked this guide whilst waiting for the AA! AA chap managed to bodge it by cutting down a bit of plastic to act as a stop, so was able to limp home but now need to order the plastic clip and arrange for my pedal to be welded.

    Just spoke to the parts department of my local Seat dealer and apparently the part number for the "little white plastic clip" is 1H0721357 at a cost of 65p + VAT!. Hope that helps some people out!

    EDIT - also noticed that a black plastic clip had broken, which is part number 1J2721332A - £1.86 + VAT.

    EDIT AGAIN: Oooops, just noticed this is in the Mk3 Ibiza forum, so the above part numbers are probably wrong - they were for the Mk1 Leon. Soz!

    i ve recently bought a mk3 cupra and the clutch pedal is different to the brake and throttle so im guessing its had this problem the throttle and brake pedals have the sporty pedals but the clutch pedal is a crappy metal bogg standard 1, i went to the main dealers and asked if they had a proper cupra 1 and they looked at me blank and just said its the same pedal for all the ibizas and said there was no sporty alternative.

    how do i get the right pedal for it?

    p.s, does this post make sense?
