    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

    mine went to the floor the other day, pulled it back up with my hand and when i push it back down theres a bit of pressure but not much then it hits the floor again....think mines either master or slave cylinder on the clutch

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