Default sticking clutch pedal

Hi, I have a 55 plate t5 camper with 140,000 on the clock and my problem is the clutch pedal keeps sticking down.I am still able to change gear but the clutch pedal stays on the floor and then slowly rises up again, been doing this for a couple of days now so I dare not use it Does anyone know what the most likely thing is.Is it the clutch gone or a slave cylinder/mastercylinder etc ? Also any ideas on cost please?

Thanks Mark

Hi,

I would think the system needs a bleed, I know you have a T5 but the T4 system is similar, and that has a spring which is designed to stick the pedal to the floor if there is a hydraulic problem.

Cheers Trev.

Thanks, I hope it is somthing simple like that as I've heard so much about the clutch on these going expensivly wrong.
People have also suggested the cable, the master or slave cylinder

Right I've been informed it could be the slave cylinder or master cylinder, can anyone tell me where they are located please.

Mine does the same after a brisk sprint up the motorway but not around town. Have to lift the clutch a bit but then it's ok until a sprint up the mway again! Maybe the fluid getting hot maybe but as it shares the same with the brakes and they work ok
