Clutch Pedal Problems

11 posts in this topic

i currently own a '53 plate fusion. over the last week the clutch master cylinder actuating rod has been slipping off the small rod that is attached to the clutch pedal.

is there something that keeps this rod on ie a top hat or plate

does the pedal spring need replacing

is the clutch on the way out

and ideas or solutions would be much appreciated

:rolleyes:

How happy am I to find this thread...just called the AA out as the gf is stranded at work with a broken 53 plate Fusion, symptoms were as she was leaving work, she pushed the clutch down to stop at a barrier, there was some initial resistance in the clutch then suddenly it went straight to the floor, so she stopped on the brakes and stalled it. Clutch returns fine but no resistance either way. I texted her about the clutch rod, she presumably showed the AA man and that's it, so he's doing a temporary fix now. He says there is a small leak at the master cylinder and suggested it could be slightly overfilled causing it to pop off? Anyways, for a few minutes I had visions of trying to replace the master cylinder in the street, in the rain, and out of pocket. Just a 50p clip, how lucky am I?! Can I get it free under warranty/recall ;) Actually, a little more seriously, will they fit it for free?!

I have a fusion + 57 plate, I had put it in gear and went to release the clutch and it made a clonking sound, I then managed to put it in gear again but as I went to release the clutch peddle it made a double clonking sound and there was no clutch peddle, it just went straight down to the floor, can anyone help!!

It may mean that the pedal return spring has come off.

If you look up under the dash to the pedal mounting point you may see the problem.

The AA roadside fix for this is a plastic tie after the pin is reinserted. The guy told me horror stories of garages charging for new master cylinders up to replacement clutches. Someone developed an over engineered fix for this which was on e bay, probably stronger than the clutch.
