    Agreed, it’s just him mild steel.
    I would start with an adjustable spanner with a hefty screwdriver through the hole in the end of the handle. The adjustable can be set as quite a tight fit on the sheet steel. A few tweaks and twists and it’ll be straight.

      Great tips once again Not had time to go near the car yet to bend it back into shape. At least it sounds do-able from Macspring and Newsh. It is thin steel i'm surprised it lasted 160k miles

      Another point is on closer inspection i think my master cylinder is fine. Because the shaft was moving out of line with cylinder i thought it had broken. Didn't realise it was a ball fitment on the shaft so can move around which makes sense right enough. It goes into the cylinder with just hand pressure and returns itself.

      So why i suddenly had no clutch remains a slight concern. I hope it's just that the broken pedal box bent so far that eventually it wouldn't function. If not, i hope i've not got another problem. Anyway sort pedal box and refit and go from there.
