How to ajust the clucth

If you have a metal cable going to your clutch slave cylinder which is mounted on the gearbox bell housing (widest part of the gearbox) there is an adjuster on it. If there is only a hydlaulic pipe going to the slave cylinder then I'm afraid there is no adjustment to be made on your clutch, so, it needs either a new clutch or you have an oil leak onto you clutch pad which needs attending to, so, it's a trip to the local shop.

How do you adjust the cluch

The clutch is self adjusting,there is no adjustment,it is a fluid system.If it is slipping,replace the clutch .If it just will not let you put it in gear,then the slave cylinder,or brake master is bad.

Clutch pedal are adjustable. I don't know the proper proceedure for your particular car tho. Typically if you look underneath you should see where you can adjust them.

It feels as though the clutch pedal is much softer than it used to be and has to be depressed all the way to the floor to shift and it is more difficult to get into gear, particularly reverse.

try adjusting any free play in your cable connected to the clutch fork from the clutch peddle, there mite be an adjustment screw, nowadays its usually white plastick, take up any free play in the cable,failing this you mite need a clutch replacement.due to ware.

Cluch is slipping after changing it

everytime you change a clutch, it is good practice to change the pressure plate also. in this case, thats what I would do.
