And shes broke again!

well guys it broke again tonight, driving down the road everything feeling fine, go to step on the clutch pedal and nothing, it was a hard as a rock, so i kept trying to step on it and after about the 4th time i heard a pop sound from under the dash. the pedal then goes to the floor with no effort (clutch still not disengaging) so i get it pushed into a parking lot and look in the floor bored and theres a metal rod chunk and a white PLASTIC rod piece that is supposed to be pushed in by the clutch pedal, what in the hell could have caused this? and how much and i looking at?

Sucks to hear, but it's probably worse that you forced it.

How many miles are you at?
