I have a big problem I think.
Was just driving and I first thought clutch cable broke, anyhow im stuck in first gear and clutch pedal is all the way to the floor, when you pull it back with your hand it comes back but springs back to the floor when you let it go.
The clutch cable also came out where it joins at the firewall.
Might not be the cable.
I had the fingers on the clutch fork straighten a while ago, did the same thing.
Look underneeth at the plastic box on the side of the gearbox, check inside and look at the condition of the fork.
It was a bit of a pain to change, but not an impossability.
Thanks guys for your help, Rollin your idea was most helpful especially, in confirming what had happened. The clutch cable has broken about 5cm from the pedal, its definitely a break right threre, thus that would explain why the pedal is stuck to the floor and why the clutch cable detached from the firewall.
also there is a little $2.50 clip that holds the cable to the pedal arm, it can spread and let the cable slip though resulting in no pedal as you described.
when it comes to clutch dramas...i have had them all :S
You had the clutch pivot weld on the pedal box brake on you yet? I had that happen to me, and in the worst traffic comprehendable (for Geelong standards anyway). That was not fun atall I can assure you!
