Hi All, I think the dreaded pedal box has finally struck my Polo. I have been concerned for a few months that gear selection was occasionally difficult and the clutch pedal creaked and was lower than the brake pedal but after adjusting the clutch cable a bit all seemed ok.Due to family problems the car has not been used much then when i was on the way back from the shops the other day it went again. I have tried to get the lower dash panel off (the one with 3 screws) to have a look at the box but for some reason it just will not move? With some difficulty ( i am not young enough to bend double anymore lol) i have managed to get a camera up by the pedal and if what it shows is the bracket it looks to me like the spot welds have broken ( i also found a small piece of broken metal on the carpet) .It would really be helpful if someone who has dealt with this problem could just confirm that’s what the photos show and a rough idea of what it’s lightly to cost me to have it fixed in the Birmingham area so i can try to avoid getting ripped off. Any help gratefully recived.Thanks for your time. Eric
Hi all, Just a quick question. Below is a video of my clutch pedal in action. (1.03min in you can see what I'm on about) The bracket that I see moving behind it I assume shouldnt be moving and it indicated I have cracked welds? Do I need to replace the pedal box assembly? Thx Paul. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmzQXWo6h-E
Jellis posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustHey I was wondering if someone may be able to help. I have a slight right to left movement (about 3/4 inch) in my clutch pedal and I'm not too sure what is causing it? The pedal box was replaced about 4 weeks ago, so I'll be suprised if that has gone again. There is also a slight squeek when lifting the pedal up and down. this only happens when the engine is on. Its not coming from the gear box, but it may be coming from the clutch. I have a feeling that it may be the presure plate in the clutch but not too sure. the clutch was only replaced 5 months ago, so this also seems unlikely. Any help, or suggestions to what may be causing these problems would be great? Cheers.
