2000 Chevy Silverado 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 108000 miles
I have a 2000 Silverado (4.3L V6 Manual) and today when driving, the clutch pedal suddenly went to the floor and was then just dangling. I discovered that the plastic housing on the INSIDE of the truck that the pedal is attached to had broken where the master cylinder connects to it (the round part that sticks through the firewall). It appears this whole plastic piece needs to be replaced. I have no idea what it's called. My problem, however, is that it appears I have to disassemble the entire inside of the dash just to get it out! It's wedged up under the dash in such a way that it can't be pulled down or twisted out. Does anybody know of an easy way to remove this? Or do I have to take the whole dash support structure apart to get to it? Seems a little strange that a plastic piece like this would be so buried. Also strange that the whole weight of the clutch pedal is being supported by some plastic tabs that can break out.
have the same problem?
