Clutch failed

Hi folks, not been on here for ages.

Can anyone advise: Alfa 1.6 TS 2003 93K miles.

I was driving this evening and my clutch suddenly went stiff then the next thing is the pedal is stuck to the floor, I can only change gear now by matching the revs and crashing the box and can only start by putting it in 1st and turning over the starter.

I'm thinking master or slave cylinder and therefore big cost, as isn't this a gearbox out job??

Clutch slave cylinder is a box off job, check the clutch retaining pin as this is a fault, causing the clutch to drop to the floor. If all is ok with the pin, check for signs of a leak on the master cylinder pushrod. To check the slave look for hydraulic fluid around of dripping from the bottom of the gearbox bellhousing.

Failing that bleeding the clutch system might restore it.

Best of luck!
