  1. VW Passat B6 clutch won't disengage

    Cheers, after writing this I went out to the car, I lifted the pedal up with my hand. Started the car and was then able to depress the clutch and select gears in the usual fashion!! Thinking clutch slave cylinder?? Anyone had similar??
  2. VW Passat B6 clutch won't disengage

    I've got an 07 plate Passat 2.0 Fsi manual. Went out in it today and whilst parking I pressed the clutch pedal, however it didn't disengage the clutch and the car stalled as I stopped. The pedal also fell almost to the floor and went mushy. So I started the car but it wouldn't go into gear. I turned the engine off, put it in 1st and managed to start it in gear, crashed it over into second and limped home, trying to not stop! The clutch still has plenty of bite, anyone know what the problem is likely to be??? I had this on a Mark 4 Golf a few years back and it was the clutch pedal itself. Cheers Joe

    Cheers for the positive comments, no engine bay pix.... That's still a work in progress ;-) It's mot'd and taxed now, but not having been driven for nearly 2 years it's throwing upmarket few probs. Seized callipers being one, and the mpg is dreadful!!! Seem to be getting about 19mpg!!! Maybe that's just cos I haven't heard that VR noise in a while so am being s bit lead footed!!

    Cheers, all down to the painter really tho!! It has G60 brakes, the RA's I have are really low offset so cleared the brakes no problem. Had to get extra long bolts for them tho!! Luke I'm hoping to get her back tomorrow!!

    You spy right... Luckily, about 4 years ago I realised G60 arches would prob run out soon, so I bought a brand new set. Felt guilty taking them out the cellophane and putting them on the car!!! Wish I'd bought two sets now and sold one of em!!! I also put G60 wings on it! Bought this car to be a daily, but I think I might have to rethink that!! Apparently it went unregistered for nearly 5 years!! Hence the N Reg. Spent the first years of it's life at VW Milton Keynes.
