    clutch pedal problem

    Noticed the other day that the pedal was feeling a bit funny and i heard a plastic clicky noise on one occasion. Went to get in the car tonight and the clicky bit of plastic broke off and now the clutch wont go up by itself. is this a common problem or has anyone heard of it?

    Very common problem, its hydraulic by the way.

    Usually the clutch pedal itself breaks (can be welded to fix and strengthen) due to a poor design fault.

    I've just bought the necessary parts to fix in case it does go while im in Europe, sorry dont have them to hand to give you the part numbers but do a search and you will be rewarded

    just taken the lower dash cover and clutch pedal off the car. The welds have indeed broken and the white and plastic clips have also broken. I can weld fairly well (advantages of mini ownership!) so im probably going to just reweld this pedal, especially if a new pedal should be welded too. I take it the black plastic bit goes on the square bit half way down the pedal for the sensor (whats this sensor for btw?) And the white bit goes inside the snapped metal cage thing to hold the master cylinder plunger.

    Am i best buying the plastic bits from audi or do places like gsf and motor factors do them?

    1 x mounting : 1H0721357 £0.55+vat (is this the white bit?)
    1 x stop: 1j2721332A £1.47+vat (is this the black sensor bit?)

    Is there anywhere online where i can enter in these part numbers to find out?

    Just tried to fit all the parts back together and i can get it all in apart from the spring, any tips on how to do this, is there a specific order it should be done? Does the spring need to be compressed to go in?

    managed to compress the spring with a couple of cable ties and cut them once it was in place, wot a **** of a job! Does anyone know if its ok to run without the top clutch sensor for a while until i get another? ( when the pedal broke it took the sensor plunger with it)
