Clutch problem GTV V6 24V 6 speed

My GTV V6 24V from -01 (6 speed) has an interesting clutch pedal problem.

Recently the pedal movement has gone from a pleasant typical clutch pedal movement to a step on rubber like feeling.
When this happens the clutch also engages almost instantly when I start lifting the foot.

But sometimes it feels perfectly normal with a normal engage behaviour and today I discovered that it was possible to recover from bad clutch pedal to good simply by stepping on the pedal repeatedly a number of times.

Strange behavior, but my conclusion is that something is jamming the movement, the only question is what?

Advise please

I recently changed the clutch master and slave cylinders on my GTV 3.0. Strange clutch behaviour is typical of a failing master cylinder. You might have a problem with air which needs bleeding out. I would suggest you start by changing the brake fluid in the clutch hydraulics and see if this makes a difference for a while.

I also have a P2 GTV T-Spark that I am recommissioning. The clutch pedal is set stiff but it has moved half way down and is stuck. I had all sorts of weird experience with the 3.0 before the master cylinder gave up. So I'd suspect clutch hydraulics and that the master cylinder is on its way before worrying about the clutch plate itself etc. You can pull back the rubber on the slave cylinder to look for a sign of a leak at all there, but my money would be on the clutch master cylinder. Good luck.

Yep, go for a clutch bleed on the slave first, I've taken nasty black fluid out of there before.

Intermittent pedal feel from normal to harder is normally due to the clutch fork sticking.
