Potential causes of the clutch pedal going to the floor:  

Pull Style: 

  • The bearing has detached from the bearing cage in the pressure plate 

Push Style: 

  • The bearing has come disconnected from the fork

Potential causes not related to the bearing disconnecting: 

  1. The clutch cable runs to the clutch fork and bearing. It connects with a small rod. 
    • If this rod is missing, the cable won’t attach to the fork and your pedal will go to the floor.  
  2. The clutch cable of the vehicle could be broken.  
    • This is more common in older cars and is fixed by replacing the clutch cable itself. 
  3. If you have a hydraulic clutch, you could have low fluid in the master/slave cylinder. 
    • This can be checked by visually inspecting the reservoir. If the fluid is below the “full” line, then you have low fluid. 
  4. The hydraulics could have air in the lines, and you will need to bleed the clutch. 
  5. Check clutch master cylinder/slave cylinder for any signs of leaking or failure. 
    • Hydraulics could have internal leaks 
    • Check hydraulic lines for cracks or over expansion
