remove the slave cylinder and check if the rod inside that slave cylinder is alined to the fork in the bellhousing,i think that might be the problem,if it ok replace the slave cylinder

checked the rod in bell houseing all ok, replaced slave cylinder bleed clutch was good preasure but felt like it was kind of scrapeing when you depressed pedal.still getting pedal sticking to floor after 1 or 2 pushes,carn't even attempt to pull away because its like lifting your foot even a centimeter it fully engaged the clutch! clutch master cylinder? i do not want to spend much in correcting this fault as the car is going to be brocken up in order to repair my 325i saloon, so the only parts i really require is the engine and a few trim bits. as mine has bottom engine problem,(my own fault (women)) but as my van has no heater and its not always required, this tourer will do the job for 6months, befor transplant happens! loads of spares if required from car! straight car all round,bit of rust round N/S.F wing,apart from that its clean,no alloys,rear boot spoiler,inner boot cover,top of range tow bar.drop me a line if any one needs bits in around 5-6mths white in colour
