My sons suzuki sidekick clutch pedal just fell to the floor. We cannot find the bracket arm ANYWHERE. we have searched junk yards, new stores ...well you name it...we cannot find it. If this is such a common problem, why cant we get it fixed??
My bracket broke also and replaced it with an upgraded one without any other problems.
Replaced master and slave cylinder and problem didn't get fixed. Could not shift at all. Finally a friend who works for a Suzuki dealer showed me what was wrong. Pulled out the part, had son-in-law weld it and so far it's holding.
JUST REPLACED CLUTCH DROVE FOR 2 DAYS WAS BACKING UP AND CAR DIED CLUTCH WENT TO FLOOR. SEARCHING FOR PEDDLE ASSEMBLY KIT.
solutuion pending finding parts! What about a bhydraulic conversions solution ??
broken pivit on clutch pedal
tried to weld it back togewther and it broke again, im going to try finding it at a junk yard.
Glad I found this thread!
the clutch pedal snapped off and I can not find one anywhere.
On the way to birthday party, clutch pedal dropped to floor. Clutch pedal lever broken. I was able to get it off of the grooved shaft and will be able to get it welded. Believe this to be only a temporary fix. Need good new or used clutch pedal lever. Can send photo and diagram.

Clutch pedal assembly has been repaired twice so far. Looked everywhere for a replacement without any luck.
Pivot broken, how do I find the new replacement part
It actually a 98 tracker I have the issue with.
Clutch dropped to floor....bracket broken
The clutch pedal fell off and a shop welded it back on. Yesterday after about 6 years the weld broke and the pedal fell off again.
Just traded for it and they had problems, just said pump pedal? Is this a recall?
Yea, the pivit, or arm that holds the cutch master cylinder needs to be replaced or taken out and weld it and reinforce it.
We have a 1997 X90 in Canada.
(Btw, this site won't take a Canadian postal code so I borrowed the one for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave)
The weld failed on the clutch pedal at the pivot point .
One garage said it was only tacked (meaning amazing that it lasted this long) tried to re-weld it without success.
We will try welding the inside without adding material (tig?).
Alternatively, I have some ideas for altering the pedal to better engineer the point where the pivot post meets the pedal arm.
The clutch pedal broke off the shaft on my wife's X-90. I took the pedal and shaft out and had a friend TIG weld the shaft on both sides of the pedal. It required a minimal amount of filing on the bushing side before I put it back in. Now it works great.
Same thing happened to my wife's X90. Looking for replacement part.
