[s-cars] Busted Clutch Actuation Rod

Hi Aaron;

Yes, it can really be accessed without removing the clutch and brake pedal
assembly. It's not pretty and would probably make a great home video with
all the grunting, contortions, and cursing, but that's the way I did it.

Come to think of it, the S6 has over 200k on the original clutch master.
Probably coming up on a failure. Great. What a PITA job.

Something else to look forward to. Thanks for reminding me, Aaron! :)

Good luck with it!

Fred Munro
'97 S6

First - Sombreros off to Fred Munroe for his excellent write up on this
Thanks Fred!

Second - Can the broken clevis on the clutch pedal really be accessed w/o
removing the clutch and brake pivot assembly?  Freds comment "access is
limited" is an understatement.
To those who have done this, is it worth it to remove the pivot assembly?
(Being 6'4 isn't helpful in this instance)
At least its pushing 35deg here in my snowy Idaho driveway!
