All,

Had the SZ out for a drive and a few times the clutch pedal would stick at the fully depressed position. I could force it back up with my foot and the clutch/car would behave normally after that.

Any thoughts? My initial guess is air in the clutch line, leaking cylinder?

Thanks,

Bleed the line first, it's easy to do with two people. Make sure the nipple is rotated at the top of the cylinder (the air you want to excavate rises to the top). It is a very small nipple, maybe 7mm. So grab a few small wrenches before you get under.

If that doesn't solve your problem then investigate further!

Rebuild or replace the master cylinder. If you must drive it in the interim, loop a pull-cord around the pedal lever and place the other end under your butt. This way you'll know exactly where to grab when necessary and you'll find it much easier - and safer - than to have to 'toe' the pedal up while negotiating traffic. BT-DT.

All,

Thanks all for the advice - won't be able to take a look until next weekend as I'm away on business all week. Will let you know how things turn out.

Regards,
