Loosen up the cable, the cable should have 3/4 to 1 inch of free travel.

Car has difficulty going in gear even if pedel is fully down


The clutch is not fully disengaging. Adjust the clutch cable to obtain a 1/2 inch of free play at the top of pedal stroke. If clutch adjustment is not correct, damage to synchronizers or clutch release bearing will occur. Your clutch should begin to engage about an inch off the floor when releasing the clutch pedal.

98 golf clutch pedal went to the floor. Car would not engage any gear. Fixed cable so pedal now feels good but still won't engage I can move gear lever any where, release pedal but nothing happens.


What do you mean when you say you fixed the cable. It sounds like the cable broke and you replaced it. Is that correct. If so, did you adjust the free play in the clutch pedal to the manufacturers specification. If you have not done this correctly the clutch will either not disengage, or no engage properly. From your description it appears as though there is n free play and hence the clutch is staying disengaged even when you release the clutch pedal. If this is the case, then try lengthening the cable until the clutch pedal moves with say 25 mm of free movement before anything happens, and try again.

Hey, i'm looking to buy a used 2003 volkswagon passat gls 2.8 v6 manuel, the clutch doesn't engage befor it's almost all the way out,i told the dealer but he says that the clutch is fine...


here's what you can do to fix your clutch.

1. if your clutch still uses clutch cable (there is a cable between the transmision and the clutch pedal), the you can adjust the clutch release by tightening/loosen the clutch pedal. adjustments can be done on the transmission side of the clutch cable.
2. hydrovac clutch with self correcting feature. just pull your clutch pedal for a few seconds and check if the clutch release changes.
3. hydrovac clutch without self correcting. between the clutch pedal and the clutch master, you can see a piece of metal rod that connects the 2. this metal is called push rod. there are screws/nuts at the clutch pedal to adjust this push rod. just adjust this screw to your prefered clutch release.

Put a cluth in a 1991 toyota mr2 turbo 2.0 and its still grinding when I shift gears.. what can I do to solvve my problem


have you replaced your fly wheel and release bearing when you changed your clutch disc?

if yes, then replace your transmission fluid.
also, if you know hot to adjust your clutch release, adjust it. adjust it in a way that you need to draw back your clutch pedal a little higher for the clutch to complete engage.

here are some ways to adjust your clutch.

1. for clutch using clutch cable. open your hood, locate for the transmision, and there you can see a cable that connects the transmision and the clutch pedal. loosen in up a little.
2. for hydrovac clutch with self correcting features. just pull your clutch pedal away from the floor for a few seconds and its done.
3. for hyrovac without self correction. manually adjust the push rod (metal rod that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master)

Press brake pedal hard and release the n/s/f and o/s/r brake locks om, press clutch pedal twice and they release


This is a system on subarus to stop you rolling back when on a hill with the clutch depressed . The brakes should unlock as you release the clutch. There is a cable attached to the clutch fork in the engine bay. This goes to a brake actuator on the left hand side. If it isnt working corectly check the cable for wear or fraying. It may need adjusting by a mechanic.

Clutch pedal sticks


could be the slave cylinder or throw out bearing even clutch itself if replacing it anyway you should also get a kit for your slave cylinder just to be sure i dont think it would be a pedal problem and also if by chance its cable it could be a sticky or frayed cable if you need more info just ask please dont rate me until i have helped you fully
