Clutch cable broken?

Wen't wheeling the other day and on the way back the clutch went limp. Totally free, no pressure. Had to drive home with out it lol.. Is this just the cable or could it be serious at all?
Thanks guys

Is it like on the floor? I don't think clutches have cables. The pressure and firmness of the pedal is determined by the slave cylinder. And trust, they are prone to failure due to wheeling. You probably need a new slave.

Look to see if the linkage fell apart...I've had that happen before......Real handy just leaving it in first and praying the light turns green.

You can grind gears and shift with a clutch. It eats the plate, gears, and flywheel though.
