Unhappy Clutch pedal stuck and cant get into gear.

The clutch pedal just dropped to the floor and I cant get it into gear. It came back up again and we managed to get it home but its happened again and now it wont drive.
We're assuming we need a clutch but before we go the the expense of ordering one does anyone know if it could be anything else.
Thanks
We've just tried the car again and the pedals come back up but we cant get it into second gear without forcing it but the other gears are fine.

It sounds as if the clutch slave cylinder is leaking ie: the seals have gone. Have a look underneath around where the engine and gearbox join and you may see brake fluid running down , you may be able to see from the top the slave cylinder if you can put your hand on the rubber at the end of it and you should be able to see brake fluid on your fingers.

Some models clutch and brake master cylinders share the same fluid reservoir - check the level in the reservoir/s, and as mentioned look for fluid leaks.

For service info register (free) with KiaTechInfo and click on 'Shop' on the left, and for elect schematics click on 'ETM'.

Quality and not quantity counts.

Thanks both when the engines on we can smell burning rubber so we were wondering if the clutch is actually going and needs replacing,

When the clutch friction material burns it has a distinctive smell, which to me does not smell like rubber burning.

Have you checked out the other suggestions ?

Do you have this burning smell with the car in neutral and the clutch engaged?

Is there any sign of an oil leak in the area of the gearbox bell-housing? a leaking crank seal could cause the clutch to slip, and smell like burning.
