I too am having problems with my 2006 GV clutch master cylinder. I noticed gradually over several weeks the gears and clutch pedal were degenerating and then the cluth gave completely. My mechanic took a look around and said the cylinder is the cheapest one he has ever seen, it's just a piece of plastic apparently! Is going to hopefully get the part this week or next, though he said as it's such a cheap and nasty part its likely it will happen again in the future. Not happy!

Hi Got a 2006 grand vitara with a manual gearbox. I am losing all my clutch fluid. Have no clutch at the moment so cant move he jeep. There is no busted line but can see some fluid at the bottom of the...

the problem is that as it is a grand vitara ( suzuki) it is not a jeep so don't slander the Suzuki name
next for your problem , replace the slave cylinder as the fluid is leaking past the worn rubbers
AS it is 2006 model , there is every possibility that the clutch system has never been maintained so a clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder would be a good investment

2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara. 5 speed. clutch is pressed in vehicle still in gear have to shift to neutral at stop lights. Have to shut vehicle off to get in gear. Is this a clutch or cylinder prob!Em?

The fact that you have to switch off to get it into gear suggests a cylinder problem.

Check that the cylinder isn't leaking (and there's fluid in the reservoir..).

Clutch cylinders aren't overly expensive:

... and if you hunt around you may even find an overhaul kit which is even cheaper.

I have a 2000 suzuki grand vitara that has a problem going int gear

check and bleed the clutch system at the slave cylinder and if that dose not improve the clutch operation then replace the master cylinder. If the system is cable operated then replace the cable. If you have removed the clutch to replace it then the clutch plate is probably in the wrong way round and the centre is hitting on the flywheel bolts.

Can you adjust a clutch on suzuki vitara 2.7

I think you will find the actuating system is hydraulic, hence not adjustable. There may however be some small adjustment on the rod which connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder to take the slop out of it. You would feel that kind of slop when you push the pedal down. Clutch is good for about 10 years of normal driving, so you are at 12 and it is time for a new clutch.

My clutch is barely engaging even when depressed all the way to the floor. Can it be adjusted or dose it need a clutch replacement?

I would try adjusting the clutch master such that the point of engagement at the pedal, is further from the floor. This will effectively increase the travel of the clutch slave and possibly solve your problem. The clutch master pushrod should have an adjustment behind the pivot at the pedal bracket. Usually a lock nut has to be loosened off a little and then the rod screwed out of it's holder to effectively lengthen it.

-If the clutch fluid is OK , then The bearing of the output shaft is damaged or clutch release bearing

My clutch needs replacing on my 2007 Grand Vitara after only 16000 miles. Suzuki Corp says if slave cylinder is the problem, it will be covered on warranty. I want this repair to be paid by Suzuki whatever...

A clutch I would think,is like brake pads or filters,they are not covered and are considered expendable.
The vehicle is 3 or 4 years old also.
I understand your issues, I would suggest you move on, and forget the Mfg or Dealer,they won't stop the world for you, or common sense.
