Clutch headaches

My girlfriend drives a 90 tracker, no lift, bone stock. We've had nothing but problems with this thing. Which is really disapointing, because I had a jacked Samurai and never had any problems.

Anyway, my gf loses her clutch right in the middle of traffic a couple days ago. She said she heard a POP and then the clutch pedal had nothing. I took a couple hours off work to go take a look to see if I could fix it, thinking it was just the adjusters that had come loose or something easy. When I got down there, I saw that where the clutch cable mounts to the firewall had pulled STRAIGHT THROUGH THE FIREWALL!! I could have driven it home by using the starter motor to get me goin in first, then shift with no clutch (not the first time I've had to limp a car home with no clutch), but we decided to get it towed instead as we both had to get back to our jobs.

Once we got home, we limped the car up to my friends place on the mountain to weld on a plate where the clutch cable originally mounted. While welding had a small fire from the insulation by the firewall catching fire (we moved it aside as far as we could before starting wedling).

Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem with their clutch cable? Oh and the cable that pulled right through the firewall was about 1 year old, we replaced it when the original dried up.

yup on my old 89 tracker, i had the clutch cable pull right thru the firewall, tore metal and all, i did the same thing u did welded a plate in, but now i have learned if the clutch cable gets worn and sticky replace it, ASAP, cuz afterward i found the old cable cracked the metal that held it, and it just got progressively worse and also make sure the plate is in the right spot, i also snapped a new cable at the top hook, from being at the wrong angle.
