I have noticed that the Clutch pedal has two positions.

 

After depressing the pedal to engage or change gear the pedal will stop half way through the full potential movement on releasing the pedal after engaging gear. It does not slip the clutch in the first stop position however a 'nudge' with left foot will return it to full movement position or 'top position' full movement of pedal.

 

Is there a reason for this 'two part' move on the clutch pedal or does it need a little lubrication for it to operate fully each time.

Its not meant to do that.  Obviously it needs lubricating, or else it's catching on something,  or something has come adrift.  Needs investigating.

I does occasionally return fully so I think I will lubricate it first when the weather improves don't want to get my knees wet getting down to the pedals area :)

 

will update as and when thanks for your response Marvin

Thought that first time I realised it was a 2 action lever.

 

I think it is a design feature to fully lift pedal away from 'Clutch Slip' zone after gear engagement for those who ride clutch.

 

However it appears mine is meeting friction (resistance in electrical Circuits :)) at the second stage either by tight fitting bushes or lubrication needed.

 

Thanks for your contribution Granpa

There is no clutch clearance in Citroen cars, when the pedal is first moved the operating arm is already in contact with the release bearing. The clutch pedal should have no restriction.

Update!

 

Wonder if this is relevant seen on other pic site http://c4owners.org/...php?227625.post going to give a dealer a call.

 

Still raining here so not been down to it looks awkward as one reply in the link thread suggests

Pleased to advise that it was a friction issue lubricated clutch pedal pivot area now returning to full up position
