While i was driving today, i pressed the clutch to shift gear and the clutch pedal stayed stuck to the floor, i had to pull it out with my foot each time. Now everytime i depress the clutch it goes all the way down without having to put much force like i used to and it just stays stuck to the floorboard. I sprayed some lithium grease on it once i got back home hoping it just needed a little lubrication. Fearing the worst. Is this a minor problem or will i have to get the clutch replaced?

The same thing happened to me about 180ks in the country away from my mechanic. I nursed it back and it turned out to be the trust bearing. I drove into the yard and my Rx* sat for about thirty minutes while they cleared a space in the workshop. It was then almost impossible to change gear and i drove the 20 meter and the bearing went with a real pungent odour -oil and steel. I hed the clutch rebuilt and but evenwith my ks 285000 the plates still had 205 wear left. Ive owned it since new November 2004. Like to know if any one else has got this much life out of the clutch.
