Where is the Clutch Adjustment located on a 1996 Toyota Tacoma?


Hi,
The adjustment is in the clutch slave push rod and master( where the pedal push rod attaches the master cylinder ) if it uses a hydraulic type.
If it is cable type, the adjustment is on the cable front of the firewall, where the cable comes out from bulkhead.

Hope that helps!

The clutch pedal on our new 1997 polo 1.0 has a very small and low to the floor grab point- is this normal?


The clutch play can be corrected if the play is too low but if you do not have an issue with gear changing or a noisy shift then it can be left as it is in the present postion.
Also check if there is any carpet or rug that is reducing the play.
If adjustment is not available the clutch can be bad. get an opinion/consensus before you proceed.

Hi my name is daniel, i have an 04 mazda rx8 with manual trans and the problem with my car is that when the car is ON the gears wont shift and when the car is OFF the gears do shift, what can the problem...


Manual transmission?

If so there is a problem with the clutch. If its hydraulic the slave or master cylinder may be leaking and the reservoir is probably empty. If its a cable it may be out of adjustment or broken.

Sunfire gt will not go into gear


It sounds like a bad clutch or clutch cable that is either stretched or out of adjustment! Or a hydrolic clutch line that has gone bad!

2001 VW Jetta with clutch issues


Hi I am Vortash it sounds to me that your Thrust bearing on the clutch actuator arm is damaged , it is probably worn and not pushing evenly or that the cable is rusty and in need of repalcement ( hence the squeaking ? ) the cable may even be stretched ..some jettas in this country also had Hydraulic clutches and this would point to a leak ( damaged rubber seals or slave or master cylinder rubbers leak ) or air bubble , or low fluid level not actuating the thrust arm properly
hope this is of help regards Vortah

Clutch noise and stiffness


it sounds like your clutch release bearing has or is colapsing.when you press the clutch the release bearing is under the most load hence the noise.gearbox out i,m afraid.Can you still get gears ok ?.Also the pedal box,s are prone to break on polo,s ,the symptom for that is like a squashy pedal and hard to get gears.if you can look up at the top of the clutch pedal where the cable mounts see if the bracket the cable fits in to is broken away at the top.

Hyundai tucson clutch


Thank you for the request. Since the car only has 24,000 miles on it, I would take it back to the dealer. It does sound like that your clutch needs an adjustment of some type. Since I do not own a Hyundai I have no idea what the actual problem might be. I just did some research and found out that the clutch in your car is hydrolic (meaning that it uses a master and slave cylinder with hydrolic fluid to push the clutch arm when you push the clutch pedal with your foot). Trying to work on this type of clutch system can sometimes be a very hard to do. With the small amount of miles your car has on it, I would get the dealer involved in solving this problem. It could be something as simple as bleeding air from the hydrolic system of the clutch or it might be replacement of either the master cylinder, the slave cylinder and/or the fluid line that goes in between those two cylinders.

Much good luck in fixing this problem.
