Replace clutch

big job and not always necessary
as you couldn't be bothered to give any symptoms for the clutch problem then I will guess at a few and you can make your decision from them
clutch problems fall into the following categories"-
shudder on engagement
not allowing gear selection with out grating gears
noise that is present when the pedal is pressed or goes when pressed
1-- slipping--can be from the following areas
a--clutch cable failure that is jamming and not allowing engagement
b-- hydraulic clutch master cylinder compensating port blocked and not allowing clutch engagement
c--- oil on the clutch plate linings
a and b are external and require new items which ever you have
c is a box out job and is reasonably rare
2---shudder can be from
a-- broken engine mounts,
b bad drive line joints and
c----oil/grease on the clutch plate
again a and b are external but c will require box out
3--- not allowing engagement with out grating
a-- no clutch fluid in the reservoir
b---clutch cable broken
c-- seized spigot bearing in the crankshaft for the input shaft of the gear box
again a and b are external but c is box out
4--- is a throw out bearing failing and is a box out for replacement
some makes of vehicles have the clutch slave cylinder inside the bell housing as an integral part of the throw out bearing so that will also be box out
Now you have to decide if the box has to come out for a clutch replacement or the cheaper parts to be replaced first

Grinding putting into gear

Heavy on one side? I assume the trans is a manual and if so, the grinding can be caused by the clutch out of adjustment or the linkage or cable is faulty. Or you may need a clutch.

Spark look like sprink hose? in dashboard (fiat brava 1.6 reg v)

It looks like your fuel pump is having problems. If you lift up the back seat, in the centre is a big white cap (thats the pump) turn the key to the furthest position without starting the car and you should hear it work. if not its knackered and you'll need to replace it. It can be done easily enough.

I have a problem sometimes when starting the car. It just won't start! The gas pump works, everything seems fine, but it just won't start. After no less than a 30 minutes wait, it starts again just like that. The window's controls blink during and after this problem happens, and won't go up properly. Suddenly and for no reason they go back to normal after another 30 minutes approx.
