Not positive about Hyundai,but most all import clutch systems that use hydraulics do have a clutch adjustment up under the dash.Get on the driver side floorboard with a light,lay on the floorboard looking UP...under the dash.Locate the clutch pedal,now track it UP to where you see a rod coming from the firewall back to the clutch pedal.This is the rod that actuates the clutch master cylinder.Track it back to the cutch pedal,and there should be threads on the end closest to the pedal.There should also be a jam nut,usually either 12mm or 14 mm.Loosen the jam nut,and back it off completely.Now adjust the rod in,towards the clutch pedal if you desire an engagement point higher on the clutch pedal travel.If you want the engagement point closer to the floorboards,adjust the rod out,towards the firewall.Good luck and rememeber to rate this solution.

The clutch keeps slipping, but it is fairly new. Someone said something about putting a clutch disc in and I'm wondering if that would solve it or if it needs a brand new clutch again.

If the clutch is fairly new,hopefully it hasn't been damaged.Under the dash is an adjustment for the clutch.You have to get in the car with your back on the floorboard looking up with a light.Locate the clutch pedal and follow it up to where it is mounted under the dash.Look forward to the firewall and you will see a gold colored rod coming back from the firewall,and attach to the clutch pedal.Where the rod is threaded,close to the clutch pedal,is a jam nut,and it will be either 12mm or 14 mm in size.Loosen the jam nut and back it off several threads.Now turn the gold rod inwards towards the rear of the car,and that should make the clutch engagement point lower on the clutch pedal travel,or closer to the floor,and should make the clutch stop slipping,unless,of course,it is damaged beyond adjustment,and needs to be replaced.This is the adjustment procedure for the clutch when a new one is installed,and once a year,after that.
