I have a BMW X3 2016 with a clutch pedal problem. Attached above the clutch is a white plastic mechanism which i think is the master cylinder (I'm no mechanic), it's a white plastic part with a pin that slides in/out as the clutch is depressed/raised. What has happened twice now is that this mechanism has separated! Whilst the car continues to drive, initially changing gear is difficult and when the engine is switched off it can't be restarted because the clutch won't depress properly. Any ideas why this is happening? Could it be a loose or weak clutch pedal mounting causing extra play on the pedal which in turn causes the angle of movement in the pedal to stress and separate the cylinder parts? Or is it more likely to be some other problem with the cylinder housing itself? Anybody else had this issue?

Thanks

Turned out to be a broken pedal pin. As to why it might break, no idea and then that leaves me slightly nervous about it breaking again. 😬
