Clutch Pedal Fully Deppressed So are We

Post by Trevor C B » 10 Jul 2002, 06:42

During normal driving the clutch pedal lost it's way to the floor. Initial thoughts are that the cable has come away from the pedal ( broken clip maybe)
The car is in 95 k zone should we go for a complete cable change or just buy the clip ????
The cable is still attached at the clutch end.
Any one had this problem ????

I'm assuming that you've got a Xantia? You don't say.
If so, failure of the clutch pedal clip is a common problem.The clip, although plastic, copes Ok until either the clutch gets old, and heavy, or the cable becomes worn. The resultant heavy pedal causes the clip to break off at the cable end.
I've never fitted one, but there a couple of people on this forum who I'm sure that can help.
If your car is not a Xantia, please post again with the details!!

Yes it is a Xantia
The Haynes manual suggest the facia / steering wheel needs to come off !!!
Anyone know any tricks to save doing the massive removal

Yes, do you still need to know (after the weekend) or have you got it sorted yet. I will post on here if you respond to eaxgjp@nottingham.ac.uk I fixed the same problem this weekend.
