    Hello all,

    When i brought my car few weeks ago, i found a spring & bushes in the door pocket, also noticed the clutch pedal was loose. Looked in to it & found it was the clutch return spring.

    So i brought a new clutch shaft pin (bit were the bolt goes though) & 2x metal bushes.

    I've fitted them no sweat tonight but i just cant get the spring to sit in place, its tight & needs compressing drove me too nerly setting fire to the thing.

    At least the pedal dont rock from side to side any more, but it would be nice to wack the spring back on.
    Cheers

    Thought of that but didn't think a cable tie would be able to hold it. Will do it later

    Cheers :)

    Right its fitted, took me & my mate big effort. We had to loosen the clutch pedal cage, compress the spring & cable tie & i had my foot fully on the clutch pedal....Nightmare of a job.
