    Default Clutch & gearbox went funny?

    Last night I got in the car (1.9cdti 150) and started it up with my foot on the clutch (as I always to). I took my foot off the clutch while I fiddled with the radio then back on to put it in gear. When I pressed the clutch it was really stiff for the first inch then almost fell from under my foot, the gear box went really tight & the car stalled! I started back up and it was the same but pulled away this time. I drove for about 200 yards before pulling over turning the engine off and starting again. This time it was fine and has been since. 10 mins prior to this happening I'd driven 20 miles on fast roads without issue.

    Any ides what could have caused it? Could it be an indication of something getting ready to go wrong?

    The ratchet adjuster on top of the pedal possibly as if it was the pressure plate, trust me it would not have recovered
