Hi,



I jumped into the golf this morning, pressed the clutch to engage a gear, to find that the peddle has no resistance, and just flops to the floor.



I haven`t noticed any fluid leaks recently, no patches on the drive, can the fluid accumulate inside the engine bay. the cars barely 18 months old, and its been one problem after the other so far with it. (I thought my fiat coupe should be the unreliable one!!)



Any ideas on what it could be ? is this a common fault ?



Thanks

Gurmon,



By the way nice forum, been following posts for the past few months

Yeah, I can get it into gear, but not when engine is running. I intend to bleed the system, i just hope it isn`t a faulty slave cylinder.



It has the 6-speed box, not sure if this matters though. [:(]

Had this problem on a VR6 gear box.



Clutch pedal went to the floor, so had to pump it to get it back to normal. Wasn't very helpful when you couldn't change gears when moving off or slowing down.



Bled it a couple times, in the end, changed the slave cylinder, and it was fine again.

Seen this on a few TTs, and the pedal has just stayed on the floor when pressed, and seems to only do it in very cold weather.



Some times it was okay again after we had lifted the pedal back up, but on most have had to replace either the master or slave cyliders.
