    went to my car this afternoon.
    got in it
    and it was very slow on returning.
    so i pulled the pedal up
    and the clutch return spring fell out?
    how do i go about putting it back in?

    anyone got a pic of what one should look like?

    i can still drive the car without the spring in, just it wont go upto the top correct?

    cheers

    i know where it goes, but compressing the spring whilst pushing pedal back to hole is a bastard!

    whilst my spring has been out,
    everytime ive left the car over night, my clutch has been fine, but wouldnt select any gears!(really hard to go into gear)
    after 2/3mins of driving then gears would be fine and perfect!

    this only happened since not having the spring in

    UPDATE ON THIS!

    Removed all the bits to find out the nobble on the end of slave cylinder had snapped into the white clip in pedal!
    the spring just aids your left leg pressing the clutch and infact does nothing apart from previous.

    New slave cylinder for me.

    Anyone got a PART no??
    Ps where do you bleed the clutch from?
