This could be more than one reason. Could you please comment below describing exactly what happens when the pedal gets 'stuck' down?
Does the pedal feel correct as you push it down? Does it change gear normally even when the pedal does get stuck?
If the clutch pedal feels wrong when you use it, the clutch fluid may be low needing to be topped up and the system might need bleeding. Is the pedal slack when you press it or pull it free? This could be a faulty return spring on the pedal.

SOURCE: no clutch pressure

The master cylinder located under the dash and connected to the pedal may be malfunctioning. Try bleeding the slave underneath the car first, Be sure your brake fluid is clean also. If the fluid is dirty or muddy looking, it is possible the fluid has "eaten" some of the rubber parts in the master and/or slave cylinder. Flush the system and be sure & use a good quality fluid.
The pedal is directly connected to the master cylinder and if it doesn't come up then it's probably going to be a master cylinder problem if you have bled the system & it still malfunctions.

You could have a problem with your pressure plate, but you need to check out your clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder too. Check the clutch master cylinder fluid reservoir, and make sure it is full. It is located on the back wall of the engine compartment, approx right in front of your clutch pedal. If it is low, or you notice any fluid leakage, you need to address what caused that. You can bleed the system too, but that won't repair the problem.

SOURCE: when you press down the clutch nothing happens

first check for fluid in clutch reservoir, maybe low. second bleed air from clutch system. if still no pressure then check master cylinder or slave cylinder. sometimes it is a simple fix.

Can you adjust a clutch on suzuki vitara 2.7

I think you will find the actuating system is hydraulic, hence not adjustable. There may however be some small adjustment on the rod which connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder to take the slop out of it. You would feel that kind of slop when you push the pedal down. Clutch is good for about 10 years of normal driving, so you are at 12 and it is time for a new clutch.

My wife's 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara is starting to have problems shifting. Every time you depress the clutch pedal and try to put the vehicle in first gear from a stop position, the stick doesn't want to go...

Do the following:
-Check the clutch fluid,
-With the engine off make the trip from 1 to 5 gear,as if you were on the road
if it is okay
Let's go to the second step, With the engine running, do the same but keeping the pedal depressed , Does not engage any gear ?
-If the clutch fluid is OK , then The bearing of the output shaft is damaged or clutch release bearing

Problems with clutch master cylinder on a suzuki grand vitara 2007 after replacing clutch master cylinder was ok for 6 weeks now no clutch pedal again!

I too am having problems with my 2006 GV clutch master cylinder. I noticed gradually over several weeks the gears and clutch pedal were degenerating and then the cluth gave completely. My mechanic took a look around and said the cylinder is the cheapest one he has ever seen, it's just a piece of plastic apparently! Is going to hopefully get the part this week or next, though he said as it's such a cheap and nasty part its likely it will happen again in the future. Not happy!
