Smile clutch pedal stuck to floor c230, w203, Won't shift

My 2003 c230 kompressor manual transmission clutch pedal was "soft" and had problems shifting gears / choppy. Then clutch pedal finally stopped bouncing back from depressed for gear engage/change and remains stuck to floor .Can't shift gears as pedal inoperative to disengage clutch to shift gears*

Have you checked the clutch master cylinder fluid level?

I am not sure on your particular model. But the brake master cylinder is located on the front of the brake servo unit, the clutch master cylinder stands alone.

A picture of your engine bay would help.

That is the brake master and one pipe leads to the ABS unit but it has a pipe going out from the side and going down, I believe this should lead to the clutch slave cylinder on the side of the tranny bell housing. How low was the fluid?
