Hello Norman, Can you verify something for me. If you look near your brake master cylinder, do you have another resivior near it. My info system shows a hydraulic clutch system and a mechanical clutch cable system. I'm not sure which you have. Also if you have a resivior for the clutch, remove the cap and tell me if you have fluid in it. If you do not have a hydraulic system, you most likely have a broken clutch cable. If you do have a hydraulic system, you have either a faulty slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder. Once you tell me which system you have I'll tell you where to look next.


Your JA Expert,

I could not find any other resivoir. Only Brake fluid and power steering fluid.

Ok, that make it very simple. You need a clutch cable. One side attaches under the dash to the clutch pedal, the second attaches to the clutch linkage at the transmission. Here is a picture of where it meets the trans. You may be able to get this part aftermarket. From the dealer it is $63.00. It takes a professional 1.1 hours to install, but if your mechanically inclined you can do it yourself.
