Clutch pedal on the floor.

Hi, I've just bought a '96 MG F will a knackered clutch. It still pulls fine when in gear. Clutch pedal is in the floor, master cylinder still full of fluid. Could this be the slave cylinder (fingers crossed)? Cheers

Highly likely to be the slave cylinder, in fact I'd guarantee its the problem....around 10 for a new seal off fleabay, make sure you work the gearbox arm free before fitting though

Could also be master cylinder or just air in system.

When you say "Clutch pedal is in the floor" what exactly do you mean?

Is the clutch peddle always near the floor, or is it near the floor when it bites?

Is there a lot of free movement in the peddle?

If you are re-sealing the slave cylinder, might as well do the master at the same time, and change the fluid and bleed thoroughly. Only a few pounds extra, about 1 hour additional work.

As Dert says make sure clutch arm is free and not seizing in the housing (common problem).

If I read the first post correctly there is still some movement in the clutch in order to get it in gear? If so I would start by looking at the state of the fluid, often it is never changed and so full of water turning it into a brown sludge, it has the smae feeling as a dead clutch.
