Is my clutch *****?

Ever since I bought this car the clutch biting point has been about 1/3rd off the floor - very low, but I got used to it.

Until today...

At a set of lights with my foot on the clutch and in gear there was a huge crunch, now the biting point is right on the floor and basically undriveable.

Do you guys know what this could be? Has the release bearing just let go?

The car is a 2009 1.8 with 75,000 miles

Id check your not loosing fluid at the Slave cylinder first. If the car is still moving forward ok possibly just the slave thats gone. You can see it if you look down behind the radiator in and around the battery and EGR valve area, you will see a Bleed Nipple and thats on top of the slave. Also the fluid reservoir for it is the small one in front of the brake fluid reservoir, if its gone this will be low on fluid.

Cheers guys,

Forgot to mention, clutch fluid was replaced 3 weeks ago - it made a small difference in clutch feel at the time.

Had a quick look, fluid is still clean and filled to max level, cant see any leaks

Id try bleeding it again, maybe the bleed nipple wasn't tight enough and has let air in.

Not one of my previous civics, but a fiat I bought way back had exactly the same thing until it too, eventually gave up the bite point/pedal at the floor. A new master cylinder fixed it.

If the slave is'nt moving full stroke and the system's bled correctly the above's a likely fix.

Cheers guys,

Had the mrs pumping the clutch last night - master and slave cylinders appear to move fine, but could be wrong. Cant see any leaks anywhere, it's next to undriveable now.

It's booked in at a garage on saturday for axle bushes, so will get them to have a look, just hope I can limp it around this week.
