Have you checked your brake/clutch fluid resevoir?

Could be a simple issue with something like the clutch slave cylinder.

Thanx for the quick reply mate, i checked the fluid and it seemed to be ok, but in the fluid tank there is a hole leading to another tank inside, should the fluid be able to plow into here? Where would i find the clutch cylinder? Stupid question probably!

Not sure about about the other tank inside, but if you have fluid I assume you haven't lost any!

The clutch slave cylinder is located underneath the car usually just ahead of roughly where the drivers seat would be approximately. These have rubber seals/valves which breakdown over time (and this unit is never changed when clutch changes are carried out). As a result of the rubber breaking down the valves don't function correctly, transferring the clutch pedal action to the clutch unit. If all was fine yesterday, I can't see how this could fail overnight.

Have you checked the underside of the car for any obvious slow fluid leaks?

The clutch slave cylinder is on the passenger top side of the gear box:thumbsup

The clutch fluid reservoir is the brake fluid reservoir. If you look at the rear of the reservoir you will see there are two pipes coming out of it. One feeds the brakes and the other (the one at the top) feeds the clutch:thumbsup
