This is on my 88 std hatch:



The tearout left my clutch pedal inoperabl e, and me stranded on the side of the road.


Check and reinforce your pedal bracket ASAP.

The surface rust / miles / usage / stress from aftermark et clutch may contribut e to failure.

Telltale signs include a squeaking pedal when depressed, and occasiona lly having to adjust or tighten the clutch cable.


If anyone has a spare pedal set , let me know.

I'm sure pull-a-part is closed tomorrow.   :/

that blows.

I might have a spare around.

I know I have the rhd one but that is spoke for.

Bam-bam usually takes a washer and welds it on for strength on the wagon ones.

I got Kurtis (at Garage Zero in ATL) to weld it back together with some additiona l bracing:

I'm trying to procure an extra set so that I can weld up / bulletpro of a spare.

And in retrospec t, I think you can use a C-Clamp to hold it together in an emergency .
