Hi need some advice please, i started my car up while in reverse the other day the car jilted back and was stuck in reverse it all happened so fast had to turn engine off and pedal had dropped to the floor, I havent had any problems previously with the clutch no grinding or wasnĺt hard getting it into gear? I did have a solid fly wheel put in last year so clutch was hard to press down other than that it was fine, iv been told could be clutch gone which I donĺt think it is but also been told could be the Hydraulics master cylinder has any one else had this problem or can advise me please. Thank you. ;)

I have had this happen twice on other makes of cars. First check the clutch arm where it emerges from the bell housing, and see if it moves when an assistant presses the clutch. Also try a vicegrip on the arm to find movement. If the arm moves as it should, then there two possibilities; the clutch disc itself has broken, or the inner pivot for the arm has broken/worn away. Both these fails mean opening up to repair/replace. A fairly competant mechanic should be able to diagnose in an hour.
Best probably to take it back to the solid flywheel people; there are mixed feeling generally on that mod.

If it's a J10, my clutch pedal once dropped completely to the floor.   There is actually a plastic rod which just clips on to a little bit on the pedal and it can come off.  I just clipped mine back on.  It came off again a few weeks later, so I put a cable tie around it.
