Clutch pedal issue

I am able to lift my clutch pedal up past the resting point. I looked near the pedals and the clutch interlock switch is loose and dangling around. It still shifts and starts but it needs to be fixed. I don't understand how the clutch interlock bypass switch is suppose to be held in place.

The hanes manual shows some retainer clip but I never seen it before when I have been laying on the floor board in the past for other repairs/mods. I also pulled up half the carpet to see if any such clip fell under there, nothing found.

Is the push rod suppose to detach from the master cylinder in the firewall? If not that may be my problem.

No, push rod comes attached with new master cylinder.
It "can" come off but isn't suppose to

I have never tried to remove one so can't tell you how to reattach one, I am sure there is a clip of some sort just don't know how it works.

I searched the Internet early this morning and some jeep guys said if the pushrods comes out you need to replace the master cylinder, at least on a jeep. I went ahead and ordered a new one and it should be here by Wednesday. I move to my college apartment Thursday so hopefully the part isn't late.

I couldn't find any clip on the floor of my truck or under the carpet. Will have to see what the new part looks. Until then I'll have to drive my mom's Corolla.

its kind of like a one way clip, the pushrod snaps in to the master cylinder but usually if it pops out its probably because part of that clip is broken

That's what I kind of figured. I ordered a new master this morning because I really need it before I move into school.
