Hi,
Driving yesterday.
Clutch pedal stuck to floor.
This likely to be master cylinder ?

Any white plastic remains on footwell?

Could possibly be pedal if self.
The cylinder piston joins onto pedal through bulkhead. Where it joins pedal is a box housing. It's sometimes common for the metal box housing welds to break.
Have a good look at the pedal.

I have tried to move the rod with some nose pliers and it seems quite stiff.
A white plastic clip is on the floor.
So just get a pedal then?

You can buy a new pedal and white clip. Roughly £25 from Audi or TPS.

Or you can remove the pedal and fix the box housing by straightening and rewelding (extra welds to make it stronger). Then all you need is to buy a new white clip.

Removal is fairly straightforward but refitting pedal is a pain due to the tension spring and getting new white clip back onto ball joint on end of piston (tip... Place new white clip into hot water for awhile to soften but placing back onto piston end).

Unfortunately I've been in this situation a few years ago back. Ended buying a new pedal from Audi.

Some people might suggest fixing old pedal and beefing up the welds but since my old one lasted 15 years and 150k+miles I gathered the new pedal could just last as long.

New pedal required.
Beefing up the welds means snapped shins in an accident.
They are supposed to break instead of your legs.
This happened to me.
New pedal sorted it
Try looking in the stickies

Try and get your head up under the pedal and look at the back of it there was no visible bits I could see on the floor when mine went
