good point but even if it is the cable one its automatic,hydraulic is non adjustable.if it is the cable operated one the clutch is mounted to the back of the flywheel,nothing difficult but you will need the round alignment tool,if its hydraulic it could have a dualmass flywheel which it is advisable to change thats a straight forward job to do is it a 1j chassis build 7th and 8th digit of the vin number

SOURCE: Need to make a clutch adjustment on 1991 Mazda B220 pickup

The clutch pedal can be adjusted inside the truck under the dash. You need a 10mm and a 12mm open wrenches to make the adjustments.there is a 3-4 inch threaded rod that you loosen the 12mm lock nut then you can turn the rod with your fingers or the 10mm wrench. Turn the rod so it gets longer toward in the direction of the engine. then start the truck and check how the clutch feels. when it feels right then tighten up the 12mm lock nut. If this does not solve the problem then you may need a new clutch.

SOURCE: Clutch pedal switch stopper

dadielz 1590: To answer your question: Yes! However, there is a trick to it. 1. Make sure the remains of the old part is gone.
The new part will be a kind of semi-clear plastic and not super had, but firm material. I will have a small knob sticking out. That is the end you are going to place in the hole.
Here is the trick>>>>Ude a little "Dish washing liquid" and put it on the end you are going to put through the hole. Once you have the soap on it, Position the part, small end towards the open hole and then pull the pedal up against the other end of the part. Carefully apply pressure, pulling it against the new part and it should just pop into the hole.

I have a 2002 manuel pt cruiser the clutch pedal is tight. When you step on the clutch and put the car in gear and let the clutch out slowly the car won't go till u step on gas. Is the clutch good?

from your description I suspect that the clutch cable is faulty and needs replacing
pedal tight and slipping clutch = faulty clutch pedal system rather than clutch

On my 99 camry 2.2 4 cyl my clutch pedal catches all the way out. Is it possible to adjust it so it catches farther in?

Yes, there is an adjustment that would have the effect of shifting the point at which the clutch engages, BUT, that would not correct what appears to be your problem. As the clutch wears, the point at which it engages shifts, moving further outward until it will slip even though the pedal is completely out. I suspect that your clutch is nearing its end of life.Toyotas are such reliable beasts however, it would make sense to replace the clutch. I replaced mine at 212,000 miles, and in now has 289,500 miles and is still going strong. Hope this helps. Dano

In order to start my pickup, I must press down on the clutch pedal. The switch mechanism that allows me to start the vehicle is I suspect misaligned for it requires a very HARD depression on the clutch...


Yes you can adjust it yourself. It is not difficult except for getting at it one must be a contortionist. The switch is located somewhere under the Instrument Panel or in some cases under the Hood near the firewall dependant upon what make and model the vehicle is. It will be mounted typically close to where the Clutch Push-Rod goes through the floorpan. Adjusting it requires loosening the Mounting Screws and re-positioning the switch so that it is actuated sooner. Typically move it in the direction opposite the direction the Clutch Push Rod travels to release the clutch. If the vehicle is equipped with a Hydraulically actuated Clutch, the Switch will be located near the bottom of the Instrument Panel with an Arm attached to the Clutch Pedal near the pivot point, Move the Switch closer to the actuating arm. I sincerely hope this information helps you.

1995 volkswagon passat starts while in gear.

Since you have already tried the obvious look to make sure that the new switch is properly engaging when you move the pedal. Most of these switches have some adjustment in their placement. Otherwise search through the wire harness and tape up ANY cracks or breaks in the plastic coating. Also look at all the connectors for green corrosion. If you find or suspect corrosion replace the connector. VW''s are picky when it comes to corrosion and breaks in wire insulation. Hope this helps.

2002 Civic Dx Clutch?

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

Clutch check

you have civic SI type R with the K20A engine and 6sp transmission? correct?

yes the clutch is adjustable.

  1. loosen the clutch pedal position switch(lower of the 2 switches) locknut and back off the clutch pedal position switch.
  2. loosen the clutch push-rod locknut and turn the push-rod in or out to get the desired height and stroke of the pedal.
  3. tighten the push-rod locknut
  4. with the clutch pedal released, turn the clutch pedal position switch in until it contacts the clutch pedal.
  5. turn the clutch pedal position switch in an additional 3/4 to 1 turn.
  6. tighten the clutch pedal position switch locknut.
  7. loosen the clutch interlock switch(the upper switch) locknut and then the interlock switch.
  8. press the clutch pedal to the floor.
  9. release the pedal about 1/2 in. from the fully depressed position, and hold it there. adjust the position of the interlock switch so that the engine will start with the clutch pedal in this position.
  10. tighten the interlock switch locknut.
clutch pedal stroke should be: 5.1 - 5.5 in
clutch pedal height should be: 7.76 in

if adjusting the clutch doesn't help with the transmission feeling notchy, may be the syncros.
