Clutch gone

Hi all,

Sitting waiting on the RAC after the clutch went bang and now the pedal is stuck to the floor.

Expensive?

Interestingly I just pulled the pedal out and it still has resistance but will wait for the specialist’s opinion before moving.

I had a similar problem with mine where my clutch went to the floor and when pulled up it still worked for a while until one day it stayed down and never came back up.

Ended up being the master cylinder which failed.

Get them to check the brake fluid if you haven't already. The garage I took it to said that the brake and clutch fluid run off one fluid.
Not sure if it will help but good luck and hope its not too bad.

Sounds like the master or slave cylinder. Not expensive...

The reason there’s still resistance is because not enough hydraulic fluid has been pumped out through the split. It will give up soon...

Hopefully for you it's the slave cylinder, compared to the other massive unreliability issues: this 1 is a bum fart. had the same failure myself. yet another VW part that isn't u to everyday use....
