Question about Cars & Trucks
Clutch engages when pedal is released within 1/8" from floor
If its a cable clutch it needs adjusted either at the pedal, the fork underneath or both(unless the cable is stretched) in some cases you can shim it with washers on the adjuster shaft..if its hydraulic.. the cylinder under the car need s bled out to remove air bubbles..similar to bleeding the brakes..

hi the clutch on accent is hydraulic operation so if pedal is very low on disengaging clutch ? you may have a problem with the hydraulics 1st thing to check is fluid level? this is the reservoir that feeds both brakes and clutch but is seperaterated inside if fluid low? top up and bleed the slave cyl however if fluid low indicates a leak ? possibly slave cyl? if no loss of fluid ? then prob may be fault in the master cyl ? check fluid come back with any update please ps if this problem has just occured? check for leaks ?

Hi. Let me try to lend you a bit of assistance, also.
My fellow expert Benimur is very correct with his input to you.
But...Air does not get into your clutch hydraulics unless the fluid has leaked out at some point. As long as the cylinders and tubes are intact, I would doubt that air is the issue. Short of pulling the transaxle, and inspecting the clutch, there is really no other way to determine your issue properly.
Personally, I think that you haven internal problem with the clutch assembly. It could be worn fingers on the clutch plate, a worn clutch disc, or something as simple as the throwout bearing is hanging up on the input shaft collar.
If Beni's suggestions does not help, you are going to need to pull the trans off, and inspect the clutch items mentioned above.
Thanks for choosing FIxYa, we wish you the best of luck; let us know how it turns out.

It's probably a hydrolic clutch and on those there is no adjustment you'll probably just have to bleed the clutch. There is a bleeder screw similar to one for disc brakes on the top or side of the clutch slave cylinder.
