Clutch pedal to floor

My brother-inlaw borrowed our D-90 for a month, when we got it back he said he added clutch pedal fluid and that I should bleed the system. Bled per owner manual. Never got the pedal to raise, it just sit on the floor board. Is the clutch cooked? Something else? Help

I would check if there is a leak, or if the clutch cylinder needs rebuilding. Then if I were you, I would go see a shrink for letting your bro. in law borrow the Rover for a month!

I'd like to echo what Marc said about loaning to the brother in law. Very seldom does anyone else care as much about your LR than you; add in the fact that these are fairly temperamental units and the fact that your brother in law could give a sh*t about you or your ride, I'd say courting disaster would be a mild description for what you did. Be glad you got it back without having to file an insurance claim. Let this be a lesson. Nail the moveables fast to the floor and stay upwind in warm weather from the brother in law when he comes to visit. Hope this helps.

you check the springs that are attatched to the pedal to see if the got knocked loose
Land Rovers are by far the best looking 4x4 on the back of a flatbed...

Ding Ding. Jeeze guys, it's a simple question. If he had the spring attached the pedal would come back even if his brother had ripped off the master cylinder. It's like a $2 part you can get from Lowes.
