    Broken down; clutch pedal?

    While driving in town my clutch pedal went to the floorboard. I noted a little piece of broken plastic and actually felt it break! I was told it was a part of the linkage and need a whole pedal assy; ~ 120 total. Does this make sense? Is this common? I bet it would be an easy fix for me; however I had the car towed as I needed to get to a meeting!

    It's common, a fragile weld joint breaks. £120 sounds about right

    sounds to me like clutch master cylinder?
    apparently the clips are prone to snapping?
    got a new one from gsf for £35
