Hey all, I have a ea falcon and tonight whilst driving home I snapped my clutch pedal off the shaft and wondering what to do? Should I remove the pedal box and grind the rough bits back and weld it up. Again but this time reinforce it? I didn't have much time to look at it but its hanging loose, just my f**k Luck especially that I had planned to reinforce it this weekend.
Cheers,
Brandon

On the floor there is white plastic that's broken, it looks like a plastic washer, any ideas? Also should I replace anything else in my pedal box?

Well I bought the clevis and its plastic bushes, and I've managed to get under the dash for look and turns out the clevis is fine, and the pin that the clutch pedal rotates on has slightly bent and put the strain on the plastic bush that's on the inner side of the split pin that holds the pedal on
