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.
