look, if the clutch pedal is to the floor, there are about 3 different things that could be wrong. First check brake fluid to make sure full, see if there is any leakage under steering wheel and below transmission. Next could be the slave cylinder, it could be faulty or not bled right. Last it could be the master cylinder. If when you bleed the slave cylinder and have no movement in the arm inside the transmission then most likely the master cylinder is broken. Look under the steering wheel and see if everything looks entact. Watch the movement of the pedal and see if movement looks normal and see if fully attached. Good luck.

If hydraulic actuated mechanism, loss of fluid, defective master cylinder or slave cylinder at the clutch. Missing pin or other part between slave cylinder and clutch arm. Loose or broken slave cylinder mounting. Missing pin or broken part between pedal and master cylinder. If mechanical linkage, look for broken components or missing pins at moving joints. If you tried to shift into gear with engine running, you may have damaged the transmission gears.

The clutch works this way: press the pedal, the pedal pulls a cable, that cable moves a lever with a bearing at its end, that bearing presses on the extremities of the disk spring, that spring deforms and lifts the pressure plate disengaging the clutch plate.
In your case the spring is no longer doing disengaging because either the bearing or the extremities of the disk spring have failed - most likely the latter. You will gonna have to replace the pressure plate assembly.

the slave cylinder for the clutch may have failed, or it is out of fluid, it may have a leak. check to see if the fluid level is ok for clutch. could have a leak in the syatem, or maybe the clutch cable is broke or out of adjustment.
