    Astra G Clutch Problem

    Hi new to this site hoping someone may be able to help me?

    Got a 1999 astra 2.0 sri, and when pulling onto my driveway the other day, the clutch just gave way! the pedal now goes all the way to the floor with no resistance. had a look in the engine bay for fluid leaks and anything obvious but couldnt see anything. So, thought i'd have a look at the pedal and when i push it with my hand and listen carefully, i can hear a 'hissing' sound coming from under the pedal from inside the car! Any ideas guys? thanks in advance, stu

    sudden collapse normally means that the hydraulic bearing has failed, you may see some wetness around the bottom of the gearbox bellmouth

    Can you still put the car in gear and pull away? If not either the pressure plate is buggered and/or the slave cylinder has blown it's seals or the pipework has gone somewhere.

    thanks for the replies, i can put it into gear and pull away. thought it may be something to do with the master cylinder? being as it is quite near the peddle so to speak with the hissing noise i can hear when pushing the pedal down. sounds like there is air escaping? thanks
