Har Har! It finally happened to me!!

Taking Nipper to nursery, pushed clutch and bang!! cable snapped. Pedal stayed on floor :D

Managed to clutchless change it to the car park, rolled it backwards into a space, and take nipper in. Actually managed to start it in first to get away (advantages of having a light car and close ratio gearing :) ), drove back to folks house again without the clutch. Fortunately managed to employ services of parent to go fetch new cable - now all fixed!

Pic of broken cable below, I understand they all go here:

we have no sympathy for you - your car was broken for a total of what 8 hrs?

if you go without it for another week, and say 'um we are having difficulty finding the parts' a few times we will feel for you!!

(also i hate ppl who have the ability to fix their own car[xx(])

GONE IN 60 MINS
