I have a Kia Sedona 2.9TD on a y plate my clutch pedal just fell to the floor :( leaving me unable to change gear, stopped the engine and lifted the pedal manualy and the car drove a mile or so before happening again there is no slip on the clutch when this happens so i am thinking hydralics

but after spending an hour searching for a resiviour i am stumped any tips on where it is and how to bleed it would be a great help i am hoping to do this my self and have moderate mechanical experiance

many thanks

it sounds as though the seals on the slave cylinder have gone due to the sudden loss of pedal and the fact it worked for a short time after you pulled the pedal back up. The slave cylinder is located at the front of the engine where the gearbox and engine join. You maybe ale to buy just the seals but it may be you have to buy the entire cylinder, try your local pats place before going to Kia.

had one like this three weeks ago. The steel pipe from the slave to the chamber had cracked, therefore after quite a few pumps (he was on his way home from holiday towing a caravan, just managed to reach home when the pedal eventually went) of the pedal and it emptied the clutch master cylinder.

Just make sure there is always a max amount of brake fluid in the reservoir and then release the bleed nipple on slave and pump clutch pedal until all air is pumped out. A pressure or vacuum bleeder is better way but the old way does the job.

I thought thats what it would be by your description of the fault. I got used to it on MK1 Rover 827 Vitesse manual the thing was always needing new seals or a cylinder in the years I owned it.

Yes same here with the rover 820 I converted to manual, used more seals than oil filters!
