Clutch Pedal

Recently I purchased a used 98 Jetta. Last week I depressed my clutch pedal and a small thin part flew out of the car and the pedal quit working. The mechanic who fixed it said it was a part of the “pedal suspension” and that it has been replaced so many times in the life of the car that there is not enough room between this part and the frame of the car for it to ever be fixed again. They pretty much called my car totaled. I’ve never heard of such a thing and am now confused. HELP!

All I can suggest is that a body shop look at the damage. Don’t worry to much those guys and their welders can put just about anything back in service,a clutch pedal pivot would be childs play.
