Q: Master cylinder push rod loose

asked by on

The master cylinder push rod came loose from the clutch pedal.

If the push rod came loose from the clutch pedal, it may be possible that the retaining pin simply slipped out, or the push rod is broken. I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, examine the clutch pedal assembly, to determine the exact cause of the problem.
