This is what happened to me at 77k. no warning, wouldnt go into gear on starting one morning, clutch felt very light. got it into 1st by putting it in to gear then starting her up. Funny thing was about 2 weeks earlier i felt the clutch go a little "funny", it felt as though the engagement point changed slightly as i went into 3rd gear while some spirited driving, but it felt fine after.
