    Sticking clutch pedal

    Car is a 2014, 112k miles, more highway than city. My problem is that sometimes the clutch pedal sticks to the floor. Obviously the car won't shift when this happens. I have to physically take my foot, hook it under the pedal, and pull it up. It sounds like the pedal is spring loaded and pops back into place when I do this. What's causing the pedal to stick? The clutch engages pretty close to the floor. I'm thinking either the clutch is starting to wear (but that won't cause pedal to stick ) or there is air in the line (which would cause pedal to engage close to the floor).

    Are the clutches in these cars hydraulic or cable? I've searched the site for "sticking clutch pedal" and came up with zero results. Anyone have any suggestions or can point me in the right direction on what the culprit is and how to fix? This is really the first time i've been able to get on the forum and look around.


    Thanks.

    So, how do you replace them? Drop the tranny? Or have to disassemble it? And any ideas what is causing my pedal to stick to the floor?

    How often have you changed the brake/clutch fluid and when was the last time it was changed? Is the reservoir full now?

    Never and Never. I definitely neglected the maintenance aspect, but now am trying to catch up. I couldn't even find the reservoir in the engine bay. maybe I should try looking again

    Doh!!! I thought that was the brake master cylinder. What would that have to do with the clutch? From what I've been reading, it would appear that the slave cylinder is the culprit for the low pedal engagement, and possibly the pedal sticking to the floor and not returning to the up position.

    Is there a how-to or step by step to pulling the trans and replacing the slave cylinder?

    Brake and clutch share the same fluid. Might as well start simple and bleed the clutch line first, more than likely the fluid needs to be replaced anyway.

    I know the fluids are the same, but are the systems/cylinders linked in some way? Is that what you are trying to say?

    The bleed valve for the clutch is under the air intake, so pump the clutch pedal, bleed the clutch valve, get the feeling you prefer in the pedal then top up the brake fluid tank. The systems are only linked by means of using the same fluid. But as I said the fluid likely needs to be replaced anyway requiring every corner to be bled
