2002 Civic Dx Clutch?

My 02 civic dx i just bought with 123000 miles no idea if the clutch has ever been replaced but the clutch works fine but only for the last tenth of the full pedal... a better explanation i guess would be that i have to basically almost let my foot off the clutch before it seems to engage... but when it gets there it feels like a normal clutch... does the clutch cable need to be tightened or do i need a new clutch? please let me know if there's something i didn't explain well enough...thanks for your help.

I have just replaced an 03 civic ex clutch and transmission bearings due to a customer being too harsh on it. It sounds like its got a little life left in it if you are easy on it. 

if there is adjustment in this model use the below walkthrough to adjust it.

adjust the clutch pedal, 

1. if you look up on the top of the clutch pedal, the first thing you should see if a clutch pedal position switch, and right behind it there is a locknut, looens the locknut. once you loosen it, back off on the pedal position switch or adjusting bolt untill it no longer touches the clutch pedal. 

2. now behind the clutch pedal, there is a pushrod. and on that pushrod, there is a locknut, loosen that locknut. Now turn the pushrod in or out to get the desired height and stroke at the clutch pedal. 

The freeplay is the amount of push on the clutch pedal to where is starts to have resistance from the top. I have usually been told it should be set at 1 1/2-2 inches of freeplay.

Once you set it, tighten the locknut on the pushrod. With the clutch pedal released, turn in the clutch pedal position switch untill it contacts the clutch pedal. then turn it an additional 3/4 to 1 turn. And tighten the locknut.

Now on top of the clutch pedal switch, there is a clutch interlock switch. Loosen the locknut on that switch. then press the clutch pedal to the floor.

release the clutch pedal 15-20 mm (0.59-0.79 in) from the fully pressed position, and hold it there. adjust the position of the clutch interlock switch so the engine will start with the clutch pedal in this position. then tighten the locknut on that switch.

Hope this helps

    For some reason the first one didn't show up properly 


    1. if you look up on the top of the clutch pedal, the first thing you should see if a clutch pedal position switch, and right behind it there is a locknut, looens the locknut. once you loosen it, back off on the pedal position switch or adjusting bolt untill it no longer touches the clutch pedal. 

    2. now behind the clutch pedal, there is a pushrod. and on that pushrod, there is a locknut, loosen that locknut. Now turn the pushrod in or out to get the desired height and stroke at the clutch pedal. 


    The freeplay is the amount of push on the clutch pedal to where is starts to have resistance from the top. I have usually been told it should be set at 1 1/2-2 inches of freeplay.

    Once you set it, tighten the locknut on the pushrod. With the clutch pedal released, turn in the clutch pedal position switch untill it contacts the clutch pedal. then turn it an additional 3/4 to 1 turn. And tighten the locknut.

    Now on top of the clutch pedal switch, there is a clutch interlock switch. Loosen the locknut on that switch. then press the clutch pedal to the floor.

    release the clutch pedal 15-20 mm (0.59-0.79 in) from the fully pressed position, and hold it there. adjust the position of the clutch interlock switch so the engine will start with the clutch pedal in this position. then tighten the locknut on that switch.

In order to replace the water pump you would have to do the timing belt. Don't know if you are aware of how involved and the kill level it requires.

Power clutch vs. regular clutch for '89 civic


Not unless you are going to be towing or hauling a large load. Lots of driving does not mean lots of shifting. Do you do most of it on the highway or dozens of short hops around town? Are you the original owner of this Civic or did someone else put miles on it before you bought it? If it lasted 20 years without wearing out, a heavy duty clutch probably isn't needed.

If you shift a lot with a heavy foot on the gas, a heavier clutch might do you some good but if you are a normal driver who puts lots of miles between up and down shifting, stick with a standard clutch.
