The Pedal assembly on our Panda seems to have developed a lot of play in it, it's so bad the brake and Clutch pedal are rocking around and interfering with each other.

I've done a quick search and found nothing apart from squeeky clutch (it does that too), but it needs more than Oil.

Is there a recognised cure for this or am I going to have to source another pedal assembly?.

Sounds like the circlip may have come off the pivot shaft allowing it to come loose, especially if you have a non servo system.
You'll need to get in the footwell with a torch to have a look.

Don't seem to list one now :(

I've investigated this further now and it's definitely wear which is causing it to feel loose. The circlip is still in place, in fact I took it out to see if i could slide the bar out but it's not possible as it will foul the steering column and seems to be shouldered too???.

What is making this much worse though is the return spring on the clutch pedal has come out of it's locating holes and won't stay in place. Is there a way of holding it in somehow?.
