hello , ive been on here before and havnt a clue how to fix/repair cars [negative]

anyway 2 days ago i went to go into second gear and bang the clutch pedal died

there was a few bits of plastic kicking about on the floor and thats it

the clutch pedal has no tension whatsoever , once its pushed downwards it will slam up against the floor and stay there ?

at first i was told its was probably just a small part needed for the pedal

but also ive been told it could be much worse !

its bora tdi se 150 thou on the clock

any advice taken thanks [:-*]

The clutch pedal is a common problem on the mkIVs.

Why dont you ring up a stealer, and ask for a price on a new set?

Just get new pedal and the plastic " U " shaped clip ( ball socket )that holds the pedal to the clutch master cylinder rod (ball end ) ..very common .

Usually the metal tab on the pedal which stops the plastic clip pushing out the back breaks off ..bit of extra weld would of stopped this ...think the new pedals are modified to stop this .

If you can find the broken piece of metal you can always weld it back on ...but you still need to remove the pedal .
