Re: 146 clutch problem and fitting help
This sounds very much like the hydralic side of the clutch, which is the cheaper and easier side to fix. Firstly, check your brake reservoir fluid level, ensuring it has not droped dramatically. Then inspect the top of the gearbox for damp patches where the slave cylinder is sat (just under the battery), next look up under the dash and the left hand bellow is the master cylinder, see if this is wet, if there is no joy there, look round all of the brake system for leaks.
But most of all this sounds like the clutch is not releasing because it's not being pushed. My suspisions lie with the slave cylinder, but your eyes may find different.
