RE: welding a broken clutch pedal back together
id have removed the whole assembly and rebuilt it on my bench.
welding it all up , so its better than new.
assuming the spline is not stripped., (some have a spline)
not fun working under a dash, all day...
but been there.... good luck

hint 2, remove drivers seat.
then put a sleeping bag on floor
now you can work and get get a bad back.

I took out both my seats out for the gear shifter removal work, is a huge help.

Here's that NAPA clutch pedal pad I mentioned, case it might help somebody. Same part number for brake and clutch.

Thanks, I’ll check it out.

sidenote:
I sourced a Suzuki clutch pedal from Suzuki Depot in Garden Grove, CA.
Turns out the foot pad (and rubber cover) of the new pedal are not the same shape as the pedal I pulled out of my Geo. The original Geo foot pad is ~30% wider at the top as compared to my new Suzuki part.
It’s hard to believe that this element would be different between Geo and Suzuki circa 1997.
It’s more likely that the design has changed over time. Makes me wonder if this pedal is still in use in somewhere in the world.




BTW:
My PO’s pedal–shaft repair was only off about 15°. Enough to make the car unusable.
After that disassembly, repair, and reassembly I can only imagine how crestfallen he must have been when he discovered that all of his effort was fruitless.

RE: welding a broken clutch pedal back together
getting the angle right is not easy if the spline strips or the weld snaps
it can also make the cable not fit, up top right, or the starting point of the cable, not right makes the clutch act odd,
suzuki still has pedal.
the pads are same. on both cars.. 1997. gm/ suz. ill check that out later.

but lots of clones sold. who knows what year to match the cloners do....???

The NAPA pedal cover is SQUARE and did NOT fit my 1996 Geo Tracker 3 spd, P/S, no air, CAMI.

The pedal cover that DID fit is referenced below (~30% wider at the top)

It's actually a Dorman HELP part # 20726 I got from Advance Auto.
