clutch problems

I was pressing my clutch pedal to the ground when I heard a loud bang, now I have no pedal it sinks to the ground and I have to lift it with my foot. Any suggestions would be nice.

Cable could have snapped. Lift the car and on the tranny youll see a rectangle box thing held on by 1 screw. Take that off and you'll see the clutch fork and should see the cable. If the cable is there press on the fork and if you can push it forwards without much effort then there's something else wrong. I'd look to see if the fork itself broke at that point.

Yeah. Check the cable it could have stretched out or the end point could have broke. Also when you take the dust shield off you can see the clutch and fork use a flash light and look in you'll find your problem in there more than Likely
