Where is the clip at on the car? do you have a clutch cable or is it hydraulic? If it is a cable and the clip is on the outside the passenger compartment replace the clip and adjust the play in the cable there should be about a 1/4" play. If it is and self adjusting when you need to replace the cable.

Put in new clutch shifts fine but smell like it's burning, acts like it adjusted to much . it s a 97 bmw 540i, it has self adjustor, I thought i read somewhere that something has to reset in computer


Clutch doesn't have computer and is not monitored by any other system.
Very rare car here and I don't remember if it's hydraulic or cable clutch.
If it's hydraulic then there is no adjustment.
If it's a cable then it may have one.
In any case make sure that :
1)you are not riding the clutch , in other word you are not the cause of it.When you drive, keep your foot out of clutch pedal , exept when you shifting , even when you think you just have you foot on it without pressure you are wrong , little touch already apply pressure to the system disengaging the clutch.
2)Cable adjustment is ok if aplicable.
3)Clutch engaging at no more then 70% of pedal travel distance.
4)You replaced pressure plate when clutch has been done.
5)Flywheel was in a good shape(not grooved or burnt) at the time of clutch replacement.
There is a way to check if clutch is slipping.
When you go at 35-40MPH shift it to 3d gear , take your foot of clutch pedal completly then floor the gas pedal , if RPM rising much faster then you gaining the speed there is a possibilities that clutch is slipping.(you can also smell it if it burns)
Make sure you are not hazard for any traffic when doing this test.

Clutch pedal box has snapped off its mounting on vw polo


1-disconnect battery. 2- remove all lower dash plastic panels. 3- disconnect all plugs on steering coloumn. 4- remove shear bolts on steering coloumn, easy with a long 8" sharp chisel (get 2 x new shear bolts £0.50p each). 5-loosen & remove bolt at steering rack in drivers footwell, mark position of spline before removing this makes it east to refit (tipex). 6- pull steering coloumn out towards you & it will slide off the bush quite easy. 7- loosen clutch cable adjustment & remove cable nipple at pedal. 8-remove clutch pedal. 9- pull brake pedal out of plastic insert, this will break there is no way to remove this without breaking the plastic clip. get a new brake pedal clip insert for a Mk 3 golf £4 its the same (dont let VW sell you a new pedal) 10- remove 5 x nuts holding pedal box to bulkhead/brake servo. 11- cut 2 x cable ties holding throttle wiring & disconnetc plug above heater on drivers side. 12- push/pull brake servo slightly out of bulk head. 13- remove pedal box.
Cause of the problem- The clutch bracket is only held to the pedal box with 2 x spot welds & a 10mm tack on the top corner.
Repair- Fully Weld the clutch bracket to the pedal box. Great repair.
refitting reverse of above.
Duration around 6/8 hours Less if you get the spare parts before you start.
I wasted time trying to remove the brake pedal without breaking the clip impossible to do even with theVW tool. £4 on a new clip is well worth it.
