Ok, this is strange, Thursday, when I went to work, the clutch was working fine, I did not drive it to work Friday
This morning I got in it and have no pedal at all!!!
I don't see any fluid on the ground or anywhere under the hood

Only thing I have done is pulled the dash to check the speedo to see if I could see any loose connections, it has not worked since I bought it, the speedo, not the clutch

What on earth could I have done to the clutch by just pulling that part of the dash?
This has me baffled, I don't see anything I could have done to the clutch under the dash, does not mean anything but I have never seen anything like this ghead

Any help is greatly appreciated

used is this an e21 you are talking about, it may be the master cylinder or the clutch slave, I have never heard of this though and I am just throwing out my opinion... good luck on that one buddy

I guess I should have said this is an 85 318i

Update as well: I just jacked it up and looked under it, on the back of the transmission, it is wet, looks like something has been leaking, my luck
I see the slave cylinder, I think thats it, on the drivers side of the trans?
It does not look like it is leaking, could be wrong though
The clutch master cylinder looks to be full although the fluid looks darks and smells kind of bad

Sorry, I am learning about this, the hard way it seems lol
