    Hope you can help me...

    Thought my clutch cable had snapped .. but found out that it's the
    plastic "thingy" on the clutch pedal?!?!

    Anybody got any tips, stories, help, regards changing this part?

    BTW I have got the new part from local Peugeot garage.... only £4!!!!
    LOL never paid so little for a part from main dealers.

    thanks in advance

    Update on this job

    I tried ... me father in law tried and failed

    to it to garage he looked up the heavens and said "t**t of a job"

    he did it .. took him 4 hours and only £30

    not bad after all

    he advised me to change clutch itself reason being the plastic clip
    snapping is a warning that clutch on its way out.

    Must have missed the original post, but thought I'd let you know I can
    do it in under 30 minutes. And I also agree that the clutch will need
    changing, and the pivot points of the release bearing arm in the bell
    housing will need lubricating.

  5. Just noticed this, and started to worry.

    I have an 'M' Peugeot 405 TurboDiesel and the clutch pedal action is very
    heavy, but the clutch itself seems to engage and release O.K.

    I would have thought that slipping and/or binding would be the signs of a
    worn clutch.

    Are pedal problems a sign that it is nearing the limit of the self

    P.S. how much of a job is a Pug 405 clutch?

    A heavy pedal doesn't necessarily mean a worn clutch. Could be the
    pressure plate has gone heavy due to the "time"factor--it is, what, 10
    years old if original. Or the release bearing arm pivot points in the
    bell housing start to seize up. They are plastic and get filled with
    clutch dust and moisture. Just a case of cleaning out and a coating of
    copaslip. Obviously while the clutch is out check the linings and
    gauge how much life is left.
    Having said all that it COULD still be the cable, and I have had to
    change a couple in the past when the above didn't fully cure the
    heaviness. Quite easy to do when the box is out.
