    Is it damaging to have your foot on the clutch at times when not shifting/stopping in gear


    Also i accidently drove my car about 30 yards or so with the parking brake on, exactly how bad is that and what can be done to fix it? The parking brake still works as far as I can tell, What i did to test is park on a hill and take it out of gear to see if parking brake holds it.

    if you have to ask, you shouldn't do it again...

    yes it's bad....i've killed a parking brake messing around doing that....

    and you shouldn't even rest your foot on the clutch pedal when not engaging the car into a gear

    You definitely will destroy your car if you are riding the clutch while driving. If you are at a stand still, it won't hurt nothing. The brake issue will just burn out your brake quicker and leave a burning tire smell to everyone that is behind you.
