I was messing with it yesterday. Trying to shove something in there to get the engage point off the floor. I got somthing in there but the pedal wouldn't go back down to netutral It didn't untilled I put the clip back on. I would suggest making sure that thing is in good condition. Before I found out that valuable price of info I was thinking of adding a stop between the clutch arm and the metal bracket it pivots in.

Well I ended up installing a new clutch pedal and it wouldnt hold. So to fix the problem I wedged a radar detector between the clutch pedal to keep it from coming up. I used a hose clamp to make sure the radar detector doesnt move. It fixed my problem, I was pretty pissed when I installed a new clutch pedal and it still did not work.

White clip is fine in mine, socket is worn on the back side of the pedal. Not sure about others. I though that was pretty much the problem for everyone. Never heard of the clip wearing out.

The ball on the end of my rod is shot. You can see the rod through the ball.

Looking to replace my 04 clutch pedal. Did anyone with an 04 ever get that longer clutch pedal (PN:15274047) to fit/work?

I ordered mine off gm parts giant same part number. I think its a revised 05 pedal so it fits the 04 with some extra work. People have gotten it to work, i looked up the part number at chevy and thats the same number that came up for the 2004 redlines.

Had this problem yesterday. I used some steel wire to hold the engage point close to the ground so as to keep the ball from poping out the worn socket. Will be ordering the pedeal soon. Glad i have these fourms and knowledge of a search button. Thanks guys. Part number and all could not of asked for more. By the way mine is an 04

When I get some time in the next few weeks I will be taking apart the pedal assy. to finally try to fix this problem we all seem to have. I have already replaced the pedal once, but the ball was too worn down to make it stay in the socket. so instead of buying a brand new master cylinder to get it to work. I'm going to basically cut a small piece of plastic off of a credit card and melt it into the socket to get even more space between the floor and the full disengagement point. Ill also wedge something in the assembly to stop the pedal from coming up as well. this should pretty much fix any problems.
