This is a big problem, raised lots of concern. I think it's possible to fix it by welding it back together but I'd take it to the dealer right away instead. I think they'll have to fix it because it's drawn NHSTA attention.

There has been a recall issued for the clutch pedal assembly. Check it out with your dealer. I had my clutch pedal replaced and it cost me over 900, but with the extended warranty by Mazda, I can now be reimbursed. Yeah!!!
