Potential causes of the clutch pedal going to the floor:
- The bearing has detached from the bearing cage in the pressure plate
- The bearing has come disconnected from the fork
Potential causes not related to the bearing disconnecting:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- The hydraulics could have air in the lines, and you will need to bleed the clutch.
- 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
