I am taking the F40 out for a test drive after my rear suspension adjustments, and get about 2 km and the clutch pedal goes bang, and loses all resistance. The car was in second gear, so I limped it home. The clutch works in that it drives the car, but the clutch pedal just swings freely and does not operate anything. I assume a connection somewhere between the clutch pedal and the master cylinder? Looks like a fun place to get at!! Any suggestions as to where to start, or a logical systematic checklist to follow? I know the basic principles, but have never worked on this part of a Fiero before. Thanks in advance, Steve

The rod probably just popped off the pin in the arm. Larry

This is the pin that Larry (trotterlg) is talking about. The spring clip may have broken off and allowed the pushrod to slip off the pin on the pedal assembly.

Thanks guys, sure enough, the banjo fitting had popped off. The previous owner or somebody, had not used a retaining clip, but a nail with no washer between the banjo fitting, and the nail. As a result, , the nail got chewed off, and the play has caused some wear on the banjo fitting. Will probably order one of Rodney Dickman's replacements soon. Car is up and running again. Steve
