If your clutch pedal still feels okay, then you likely have a bad clutch disc, which requires the transmission to be removed in order to replace it. If your clutch pedal does not feel okay, then you may have a hydraulic issue with the clutch master cylinder, or clutch slave cylinder. An inspection of your inoperative clutch from a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, can help you determine the cause, and fix your issue.
