    clutch help (master and slave cyc)

    right not long after i picked up my S3 the famous clutch pedal snapping happened, got it fixed under warrenty but now my clutch pedal has started squeaking and depending on the weather i can feel movement in the pedal (it'll reach a point when pressed down then clicking noise happens and the pedal will move a few more mm) now all i can think it could be is when my pedal snapped it has damaged the master or slave cyclinder. my other question is is the pedal attached too the master or the slave?

    hope you can understand what im talking about.

    thanks Gav

    Is your clutch electric or on a cable? If its on a cable, have a look it might have just come loose.

    The Pedal box is connected to the master cylinder, that in return pushs the slave cylinder in the gear box, i cant see that the snaping of the pedal box would damage the master or the slave. Just hope its not your slave on its way out as its a gearbox off job.

    When my slave packed up it went with out notice.

    Hope this helps

    cheers bud

    i've just notcied after about 20min of driving the biteing point seems to change.

    just when i was reading into the pedal problems id read a few threads saying that peopel had too replace there master as the force from the pedal springing back bent the rod in the cyclinder.

    i think your clutch fork is bent,
    it hits the rotating pressure plate which makes the clicking noise.
    pedal moves in a few more mm as the fork is bent even forther untill you won't be able to engage the clutch any more

    edit: the part is cheap but the box has to come out to replace it

    i starightened mine while it was fitted,if you removed the clutch pedal a set of mole grips will do the job depends on how good you are at diy with cras,im a mechanic so i found it quite easy but if your not very handy with cars maybe leave it to someone else,its not a big job though really just a bit fiddly.
