The car in question is a 2005 M3 with a manual trans. I have about
1500 miles on the car.
yesterday as I started the car in the parking lot after leaving work I
tried to get something from my left pant pocket. In doing this I
apparently pushed a little harder on the clutch pedal, that was
already all the way down, and it went down about another 1/2 to 3/4 of
an inch and about the same distance to the left!
I relaxed the pressure on the pedal and it returned to the original
fully depressed position. I again applied additional pressure and it
went down and to the left the additional 1/2 to 3/4 as it did the
I nervously left the parking lot and drove about a mile and came to a
stop light. I tried the additional force on the fully depressed pedal
and it stayed where it was suppose to.
Is this normal or do I need to get the car in for service?
