You have a hydraulic clutch. If the clutch is not disengaging with full pedal, you probably have air in the line. This is usually caused by a leak in the slave cylinder that reuns the reservoir dry. Check in the engine compartment near the brake reservoir for a clutch reservoir and check the fluid level there. Also check for a leak at the slave cylinder. Let us know if you have more questions.

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.

I dont know were the clutch cable ajustment is.

There is no clutch cable. The single, dry disc type clutch uses a hydraulically operated master cylinder and a release cylinder mounted on the clutch housing. The clutch release cylinder is not adjustable. Clearance is automatically compensated for by internal design of the cylinder.

If your clutch is not releasing properly, the most likely cause is a worn out clutch disc, which will require more travel to disengage than the hydraulic system is designed to provide. It is either this, or your master and/or slave cylinders need replacement.

I have a nissan micra on a p 1.0 cc

Try adjusting the cable a bit and see if it makes a difference. Keep track of how many turns you make on the adjuster so if you need to,you can go back to where it was before you began. Could be a stretched cable or the disc may have worn a bit.If it's not slipping you may still have a few miles left in it. I'm betting that the disc is worn. The gears that are difficult to engage may have worn synchros. A clutch problem will aggravate that.
