    These clutches have no cable as they are hydraulic so it might just need bleeding. Hopefully GSI3.2 might see this thread and give you a pointer on how to do it.

    sounds like either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder inside the bell housing to me.... the only way to tell which one it is , is to clamp the flexible line onto the gearbox.. if it gives a firm pedal then, then the fault lies inside the bellhousing and the gearbox will have to come off..allowing you to check the slave cylinder operation and the clutch pressure plate as well..not a small job at all to do..
