    Bit of a longish story, sorry if you get bored while reading....

    Picked my car up last night from the airport long term and started the car as normal. It was cold, snowing but no more than 1 or 2 Deg. Drove on for a while til I got to the Toll bridge. Stopped and payed and then to my horror the f*&king clutch pedal stayed fully depressed in when I went to pull off! It came out a small bit (bout 2cm) and I was able to change gears and drive. The gear changes were really rough and I stalled at some lights a few more miles further on. Anyhow another few miles and I was going nicely down the motorway and I was getting a bit upset as I had a 4.5 hour drive ahead of me and used my hand to pull the pedal back out. Once out all was fine again. Resumed it's previous pedal position and still today it is fine. I was wondering if the clutch pedal is hydraulic as this may have froze or maybe there was something jammed underneath that could have caused it.

    Has anyone got any idea as to why the pedal would get stuck in, and still let me press it a little further to change gears etc.. Not too bothered but it gave me fright at the thought of being stranded 300 miles from home in the snow.

    Dave.
