The cluth itself could be warped or cracked due to driving habits or previous history. The clutch itself could be going out due to riding the clutch too much and downshifting at highspeeds. Check your U Joints too and make sure you do not have any play in your driveshaft.

I have a 99 335 sportman. It seems to vibrate in


There might be some worn parts in the differential. If you have a limited slip differential the clutches will make that noise.

The clutch pedal seems to be very flopy and is not going into gear easily


Can be broken spring on the cluch pedal in side the car, that hold the pedal all the way back for full amount of brake fluid to the slave cylender, can be checked by pulling the pedal all the way up before steping it to the floor and putting in to gear or just look up under the daschbord on the pedal. Can allso be to little brake fluid in container. To check the master cylender rubber, step on the pedal putt in gear with engine running and wait with pedal all the way to the floor, if the rubber is gone the car wil start to go after some time (1/2-1 min or less) To check the slave cylender rubber will be dune the same way and working same way but it will be leaking out and on the floor.

Have you checked the pedal spring?
Most cars but not all have a pedal hanger spring, this keeps the pedal up and off the floor even if not connected to anything.
These springs do break and when they do the symptoms you report are the outcome.
If you get on the floor and look up at your pedal hangers, and with your free hand check the pedal operation/swing. If your vehicle has this spring you will see it as you look up, if the spring is broken it is a simple job to replace it.

Some vehicle have a spring like this:

While other vehicles have a spring like this:

you car is fitted with a "no fuel"system,so when you take your foot off "no fuel" goes to the engine untill it reaches 1200 revs.then it will allow fuel to flow to keep tickover/smoothness.(its computer controlled)you need to get your car onto the diagnostic computer,(skoda/seat/vw/audi)so you have the codes/items that need to be sorted.The tdi engine was one of the first engines that VW computerised and it is very reliable/powerful,compared to the peugeot/citroen engine.(briefly,the fault is not just a switch/cable),

Clutch went to floor like nuthing was attached to it... runs fine just seems that the clutch pedal dont work or something it just floppy now...it happened when i was moving it in driveway was fine before...


There is a return spring that lifts the clutch pedal back to the original position. It seems that the clutch return spring has got disconnected. The pedal will do its job of disengaging the engine from the gear box, but will not offer any resistance to the foot and thus give an impression of doing nothing. So, that spring should be set right. For this the clutch housing will have to be opened and the spring reset.

Idles high


Idle speed is not related to the clutch position. With the pedal depressed, the engine is freewheeling and is not engaged with the remainder of the driveline. Likely the idle speed is the same with the engine running in neutral or with the clutch depressed. check the idle air control and clean the throttle plate in the throttle body as well as checking the throttle cable for binding etc. If there is a small vacuum leak, that also can raise idle speed.

check your upper control arms, does it happen when you step on the brakes or just when driving, you might need a balance of all your wheels or the tires you have could be bad.

Please save me from CLUTCH HELL


Have your mechanic ck for a possible issue with the pilot bearing. if the clutch linkage is indeed full travel, then the clutch should be "disengaged" and the only thing left is a pilot bearing (which should be replaced at every clutch replacement) or there is a problem with the disc. If clutches dont last 100k miles it either the driver or cheap parts.
