20v engine Knock

Several weeks ago my wife had the accelerator stick down on our 20v Marea estate, the engine held full revs for quite some time before starting to knock then it stopped. The pedal got stuck behind the plastic buton thats screwed on to the carpet, part of this had broken off allowing the pedal to get jammed behind it.

The car is on a w 2000 plate and has done only 18,004 miles, Fiat are not helpful (it had a 12 month warranty), has anybody else had this happen? Any ideas as to what might have broke? Oil was o.k and so was the water level, when it happened the AA guy tried to restart it but it sounded like it had a flat battery?

The dealer reckons its the big end?
