Doesn't that have that automatic adjusting clutch cable Sandy?
If so, I wonder if the adjuster slipped, and there is too much cable, 
and not enough clutch...  Adjuster is a tube thing about foot and a bit 
from the transmission end.  It's basically some grabbers that take up 
slack on a serrated piece, and if they cease to be grabbers, they go 
back to full slack, or to the nearest grabbers some distance away.  Ask 
him if lately he pushed on the clutch pedal and it boonked to the floor 
without releasing the clutch.
Spline really seees little movement that could be enough to hang up a 
clutch to that extent.
