Wobbly clutch pedal

Post  Airwalker88 on Mon Apr 23, 2012 3:02 am

Went for a drive today, and everything was going well... then my clutch pedal suddenly sprung forward and was vibrating quite a lot...

It doesn't vibrate violently all of the time, only at low-ish revs (like doing 40-45 in 4th), anything higher or lower and it is fine and doesn't wobble, and in neutral it is OK.
Also, when I went around a left hand bend, it stopped, regardless of speed or gear.

I did notice, that engaging second is a bit tricky when going around a corner, but this has been like that since I bought the car (i haven't got around to playing with the linkage yet)

Does anyone have any ideas on what the issue could be?

Thanks,

Good call - will have to get it up on a jack and take a looksie.

Took the ol' boy to a local garage for an MOT and for them to look at it...they didn't even bother with that, took it for a 10 mile joy ride then had the added fun of failing the MOT!

Apparently my suspension mounting is missing on one side, and heavily corroded on another...chaffed brake pipe (which is itsn't - varified by another garage)

Getting it fixed up this weekend so will hopefully be back on the road by end of next week
