not your day, if you got the guys details then get to the hospital and get a claim in, that'll make your day.

You've possible broken an engine mount, if its not the clutch cable.

Time to get your head underneath.

Re: cinq 900cc help plz

Try the bolt that holds the stabblizer bar on under by the passenger footwell. it is bolted on to the back of the gearbox, mine fell off one day while i was just driving down the road.
May be that

As long as you arrange the river your lying in so that the water enters your overalls through the neck, and out a trouser leg its not too bad.
