Buy a Defender. Clutches on them are light as a feather.

Count yourself lucky. My clutch pedal snapped on the A3 the other week and left me stranded in the middle of a crossroad in rush hour Common fault apparently.

Yeah, well we pushed it out of the junction then sat and pondered on it for a bit with the pedal stuck to the carpet. Managed to get it moving in first then it's easy enough to change gears. Luck was on my side getting back and all the lights were on green Got it sorted for 80 all in, which I thought was fair as it looked like an ass ache that I couldn't be bothered with.

Did you suffer the ass-twitching nerves for like a week after every time you pressed your clutch?

Will the clutch just go?

I know the boss will not spend money on this unless he has to!! I use the van to commute and visit customer sites - i.e, tomorrow will do 200 miles there abouts.
