there is still air in the system or air is getting into the system from a leak
the pedal return is from the pressure plate pushing on the throw out lever which in turn pushes the fluid back to the master cylinder and so pushes the pedal back up
no fluid no pedal return
Get a friend to help. Press clutch down to floor and hold, have your friend loosen the line at the slave cylinder, or clutch actuator under the car enough that fluid squirts out. Have him tighten the line back up. Release the clutch and press back to the floor again. Have your friend repeat the process as before. (loosen to let fluid squirt out, then tighten back up) Release the pedal. Repeat this process untill there are no air pockets left in the line. NOTE: if your clutch pedal fails to return to the top, simply pop it back up with your hand/foot, wait a few seconds, then depress to floor again for another bleeding.
Unless you have bled the slave cylinder properly there will still be air in it. However I think the problem is in the clutch master cylinder ---piston rubbers leaking fluid back to reservoir. Replace the m/cyl with new item and bleed out correctly.
Kinda sounds like you might be pushing on the brake at the same time since they are close together. If it is working fine for her i would move my foot over just a bit. There are no adjustments since they have a hydraulic system, just make sure the fluid is up in the resevoir it is located on the drivers side under the hood back by the firewall to the right hand side of the brake booster, it is plastic and round with a cap on it, you will be able to see fluid through it should be approx half way..
If this is a hydraulic clutch, ask your mechanic to change the master cylinder (slave cylinder). This could have a leak (which he/she should have found, and checked this). If not, the cable may be too loose, or is not hooked up correctly.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
The easiest way to bleed out a clutch hyd system is to connect a hose from the closest front brake caliper bleeder to the bleeder on the slave cylinder. Crack both bleeders open and pump the BRAKE pedal very slowly. It might be best to have someone pump the pedal for you.You will feel the pedal get harder once all the air is pushed out of the clutch system. Close off bleeders and remove hose and test drive car.
This is a back bleed and it's the only way to get all the air out of the clutch system on Peugeots and some other Euro cars.
