Default Clutch cable problem urgent advice needed

Hi everyone, my name is Pablo and i own a 1979 Peugeot expert 1.9TD van, and live in Swindon.

The clutch cable plastic at the pedal end snapped, so i made a metal one to go over it, as photo below.
This worked ok for a day or two, but it has gone again but this time it has not snapped as i have the metal retainer over the plastic so it is still on the pedal.
I took the spring off the clutch pedal and it does spring up when i press it down, but i have no clutch, so is the cable snapped or is it something else.

I don't want to spend 62.00 on a new cable if it isn't the cable that has gone, so can anyone please shed some light on this for me as i urgently need the van for my carpentry & maintenance work.

Any help at all would be very much appreciated.
Pablo.

Try pulling the cable with ya hand if it comes out its that,the question is did it snap because of a faulty clutch

There is a self adjust built into the cable and these can fail but as said above your clutch itself or the pivot on the bellhousing needing greased may be the reason for the cable failing
