It might be something simply like clutch master cylinder needs bleeding. You should try to replace brake fluid in clutch then looking for other issues if doesn't help.

@kbdecor55 You may have bleed clutch. If you find a brake fluid on clutch pedal that's mean your brake / clutch system is not closed and somewhere you loose fluid. The first symptom is clutch pedal not coming back. Do you have got lost in brake fluid in reservoir?
It might be master cylinder but closer look from top of bonnet might expose different issue. There is brake line what is just push fit to master cylinder, also bleeder valve is plastic made. I will take air box off and take a look what is happening there. As you know if you remove battery for replacement, you will have great look to all components.

diagnostic is a new slave/and clutch due to contamination of fluid, replacing battery while the old ones out, a car supplied to run around while mines in dock total £1100. this is at a local ford dealers nr me.
That's hurt. Might be cheaper option to find other reputable independent garage than Ford.

Doesn’t the brakes and clutch share the same fluid on the kuga. ? Seem to recall they do.
That's quite weird because brakes and clutch use the same fluid, but @kbdecor55 haven't got loss of fluid or might be minimal, because clutch pedal sometimes wouldn't go back up. You will never know what have to be changed until you take everything apart. It's quite lots to do, so labour cost will be high due to ammount of bolts to unscrew. If clutch disc it's really contaminated with fluid you have to change it but using small inspection hole on bottom of gearbox you can't really tell it is or not. Gearbox has special design to avoid any contamination in case of leak.
