Clutch advice needed.
4 months ago I bought a 2003 Streetwise 1.4 with 55000 miles. After a month when the frosty weather arrived the problem started= start engine-push clutch to engage gear-clutch pedal goes to the floor with no resistance-panic-push clutch many times,no improvement-after about 5 minutes with engine running there was a metallic twang noise and full clutch operation resumed. Even though the frosty mornings have gone the problem still persists, until the engine has been running for some time and I assume put some heat into the block/bellhousing the clutch is very reluctant to perform. I described the symptoms to my friendly*local garage and he said it's the hydraulic cylinders (even though he knows it's cable). Can any expert point me in right direction for a remedy.Thanks
