Renew the clutch cable its a auto adjust mechanism and the cable comes with a plastic tie around the middle bit so fit the cable and then and only then remove the tie ,this is a difficult job and not easy for a weekend mechanic so be warned

Clutch biting point very high on peugeot 206sw 1.4dhi it it about to fail


The reason for the high biting point is simple. The clutch is made of 3 main components.
The pressure plate friction plate and the release bearing.
The more times clutch is depressed the concentric spring fingers wear in 2 ways . Firstly by good old metal to metal rubbing and secondly the concentric spring fingers don't return as far as a new one causing the release bearing or csc to adjust .
When the pressure plate concentric spring gingers wear they don't sit proud and require more pedal effort to depress. .
When they loose there spring like feature they require a greater distance from the release bearing. Or it has to travel further to depress them to lift The pressure plate and fee the friction plate from the lay shaft on which it is splined onto to give you drive once released.
The further back the bearing has to travel to allow the fingers to clamp the pressure plate to the friction plate . The more the clutch has become worn and unserviceable.
Self adjustment on hydraulic clutches are a hard one to gauge as you have no idea how far the piston has moved out to compensate for this wear . With a cable you can physically see the wear and adjust .
High biting points on any car are useless. You want a biting point to be 2 to 3 inches from the top and not nearly level with the brake pedal.
Anyway it seems apparent that Peugeot and Citroen both have high to almost no point at which they bite .
I myself would modify this as an engineer.
But it seems to be normal on these cats to have absolutely no biting point worth talking about.
My sisters 2012 206 1.4 is a very high biting point and I myself would not be happy with it . It gives u no indication of a worn clutch if its self adjusting.
Alll hydraulic clutches are self adjusting. So why are Peugeot and Citroens sooo high. Its ridiculous.
A very idiotic idea and I'm taking it back with her and I'm complaining. Hopefully I should get somewhere and ill update you all

Clutch pedal does not need to be lifted far away from floor before engaing, less travel than usual, 2003 TD4 , the pedal is not as firm as usual, softer pedal.....


if its a clutch cable it been adjusted to tightly, common after a new cluth, will start to lift after use but double check the cable is not to tight as it may snap. if its hydrolic then the oil coild be low or air locked.

I need to change the clutch interlock switch can you tell me how to fix it ?


The Clutch Pedal Position ( CPP ) Switch is near the brake pedal. It has a 6 pin connector on it ( all 6 pins are in a line ) that has 4 wires from it.
Black w/ white stripe is a ground
Tan w/ light blue stripe is the clutch pedal position sensor top travel
Black w/ white stripe is a ground
White w/ Black stripe is the clutch pedal position sensor bottom travel.
I think this is what you are talking about, if not please let us know

When I release the clutch pedal, the clutch bites/engages immediately. There is hardly any travel and the pedal feels slack. Will I need a new clutch?


No it just needs adjusting. Don't adjust it very tight adjust until the preasure comes on the pedal about half way up or where you are comfortable with it. Cheer's

Clutch bites high up on pedal movement


check clutch master cylinder rod adjustment and pedal height should be just higher than brake pedal. could try and bleed system also.
most hydraulic clutch systems have high take up points, adjust master cylinder rod, check for free play at top after adjusting if all that is O.K. then clutch plate may be nearly worn out but not slipping at this stage.

Self ADjusting Clutch Cable


Your car uses a hydraulic clutch, they are self adjusting and there is no way to adjust them provided, when the pedal engages near the top of its travel this means the clutch disk is worn out.
