No, it will not leak. Look under the dash by the clutch pedal, follow that up and you will see a rod coming off the clutch pedal lever going to a green box looking thing, and see if that rod looks broken. If you are unsure, take pics and post them.

okay so the plastic rod isnt broken, but is it ever supposed to move? or is ANYTHING supposed to move? cause i press in the clutch pedal, and nothing except the pedal moves at all.

That rod should move when you push the pedal down.

Take a pic of what is under there, the rod has to be broken off from the pedal somewhere.

Almost sounds like what happened to me that one time. Except my clutch cable broke off the pedal. The actual rod didn't break.

Scott helped me fix it long enough to get it home with some bubble gum, a paper clip, and some tape. Even thought the tape didn't help. Lol.

so i figured out how to do my bettery mount . i jsut need to get ahold of some good sheetmetal and some 1/8 inch bar stock for re enforcement and i should be able to make a big enough base that my box can sit on , my spare tire will clear, and teh track tech guys wont mid it. i'll have to weld my bracket in, and bolt the box to it but i doubt it'll be an issue. we'll see what i can get ahold of for steel from my mom's bf.

Has anyone been to Bergstrom Fiat?? I want to maybe take a trip down there one day to see what all the hubub is about. From the website it seems they only have two models. The Fiat 500...and the Fiat 500C. I want to try filling out an application to work there, but I don't know if they'll last too long. Well I said the same thing about the SmartCar dealer and they are still around.
