Here is a pic of the clutch pedal that has broken the main support bracket. The support flange on the opposite side to the pedal on the main support bracket has come away and torn a bit of metal from the main bracket and the clutch pedal has now kicked off to the side a bit. It doesnt contact the clutch switch to enable cruise control and you have to put the pedal to the floor to engage the clutch.

Is there anyway I can close the gap it has left back up and then weld it to make it stronger or do I have to replace the main bracket?

I need this fixed ASAP as its only going to get worse.

Cheers

You dont have a choice, it has to come out. (pedal box)
Mine was similar a little while back, the spot weld fatigue and crack at the bracket.

I got a welding joint to fix it and strengthen it and it cost a grand total of $10.

OK folks here is stages of me getting to the pedal box.
Hopefully this may be of some use to people.
If there is anything you guys want me to take a picture of while the dash is out send me a PM and I'll host it up for you.

OK here is the photos.
Stage 1 remove centre console, glove box and front side kick panels (left one exposing the ECU)
Image

Stage 2 remove dash facia.

This is the hand brake assembly. Dont know why I took a photo of that.

But yes, migs do create heat, sparks, and if not careful, fire!

Bugger that. The only settings I use on climate control is 16 degrees or 32 degrees. Better just having air con hot and cold.
