Heres the scenario. Mk2 goes out as a friend test drives it, assuming it got driven very hard car comes back with clutch pedal to the floor.

Back at garage theres no fluid loss from the master cyl. and pedal is too the ground. We change the master thinking its a bad seal, after bleeding the system the slave is pushing out the fork fairly well. With the engine running and pedal down, you can't shift at all, but you can with engine off.

So I figure its the slave cylinder not pushing out far enough, get another one, bleed system, it pushes out about the same as last one but same problem.

Throwout bearing melted? Fork screwed up somehow that isn't pushing out the pressure plate?

sounds like the clutch went and your master cylinder may have been fine. when the disc "explodes" you can move the clutch fork on the tranny by hand. if you can do this its the clutch, and it may be stuck ingaged. also, if this is the case, what probably happened was the rod in the slave cylinder popped out too far and allowed all the fluid to spill out. when you realigned the fork to the slave you prolly pushed the rod back in without realizing what happened.

also, its possible he was trying to put it in gear when the master cylinder went out and could have grinded hard enough to mess something up internally. check and see if you can move the clutch fork by hand first.

if yes, hydraulic is ok, you got a problem with the clutch hardware... or prob with the tranny. fluid level ok?

there should be no movement between the fork and slave cyl, and the fowk shouldn't wobble. if play or wobble, fork may have come off the "ball" .

any noise other than grinding gears? through out may be toasted. disk can explode and make for hard or no shifting.

good luck

:)

I had that problem. First time it was the clutch. Second time (after replacing the clutch) was the release fork off the ball. As they say, third times the charm!
