No Clutch - pedal feels completely disconnected


147 1.6 TS. 2007 model.
Driving home the other day the cluth bite point began to get further and further down towards the bulkhead. Within the space of a couple of miles the clutch wouldn't disenage at all. Managed to get car home. Checking over everything the fluid level is still at the max in the reserviour, no sign of any leaks anywhere - everything seems OK. The clutch pedal is connected to the pushrod OK (it is the later design). However there is absolutely no resistance on the pedal - like it is disconnected - it moves back and forth OK returning by the pressure of the spring only. I have heard that there is a spring in the master cylinder that can break stopping the piston from returning?
Any one had this problem? Hoping that it isn't the slave as I can see that it is inside the bellhousing!!!
Any advice greatfully received.

On your TS slave is in the gearbox so you have to go to the mechanic to check for any leaks first in the master cylinder and if this one it is ok, then it is slave that is left.

Can you engage gears, especially in 1st and reverse while engine running? If you cannot then it is most probably some of your clutch cylinders.

Had a similar issue with an old 155. Slave seals popped. Pedal hit the floor and stayed there. No fluid leaks though.

Its almost certainly the slave cylinder which unfortunately is a gearbox out job on your car. Change the clutch while its out - about 450-500 all in.
