I know this is an old thread but I wonder if people can assist, as I'm facing a bill of £1,100 and the warranty people are saying they're not covering it! My GT got stuck in gear when parked up last week and it refused to go back into neutral... whether the clutch was engaged or otherwise. It also behaved the same when the engine was on. When I eventually got it out of gear the clutch seemed only to do anything in the bottom 25% of the pedal travel, with the pedal being all floppy until pressed down to this level.
I eventually got the car underway but within ~100 metres there was this loud 'twang' that reverberated through the car like a broken mattress spring.
Now, based on that I'm convinced the problem is mechanical, rather than simply a worn clutch face! I.e. why SUDDENLY go? Why the big 'twang' from under the car?
If anyone thinks they know what it could be please let me know. I can then sound a bit more informed when I talk to the warranty people tomorrow. Cheers all...
