Strange about the pedal sticking... are you sure it's cable controlled or hydraulic ?
Either way it could be the control arm has jammed... which would stop the clutch from operating.
The clutch plate may have burnt out if jammed not fully engaged... that'd be the burning smell.

Hopefully it's a simple strip down of clutch and clean up /new plate. But if not a new flywheel and kit... fingers crossed for a good result.

That's exactly what happened to the clutch in my diesel Xsara Jo. Started squeeling a week or so before it went, then the whole clutch assembly just collapsed, with the same reult you got...............pedal welded to floor, and burning smell. I scrapped it!.

I didnt get squealing until seconds before it went....doesn't sound too good really.
was it just the clutch though swanny or did the gear box have damage too?
Im in a lose lose situation as i cant afford another car..so if this is going to cost 250-350 to fix im gonna have to pay it, as i cant get another car for that money!
