Well ..
My 9000R taught me one more thing today ...
As some know, almost two months that I've been trying to find out why does my clutch pedal was only half way of the course ...
And, it was getting worse ...
Today my dad invited me to go home for lunch ....
And the car after parking ... walked no more ....

Or better ... could not engage... with the pedal at the bottom, couldn´t put any gear. Always thought it was because of the auxiliary pump clutch ( Scantech one´s...)
Well ...
After lunch, nag my father to bleed the clutch (I thought it was air in the system) ...
But there was no air ....
?!?!??!?
The pedal half way ... without recovering .....
WTF...
My Father said he would loose the main clutch pump (the pedal) to try to put it elsewhere ...
When it puts the key in a nuts ... entire bracket played ....
He asked me for some light ....
And discovered that the support the main pump had broken and was tearing ...

The pump as it wasnt in his position did not recover all the way ....

Welded and the result is impressive ...
Even the clutch is MUCH lighter!

So... WARNING: People ... check carefully the support of the main pump ( clutch ) near the bolts! Your problem with sticky clutch pedal may start there ....

:)

Yep, had a similar problem to this!! the support tab on the master cylinder had broken, not allowing full movement of the clutch pedal. A new MC fixed that quickly and gave peace of mind for 50k+miles :)
