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.

SOURCE: Clutch adjustment 95 Jeep YJ

no, there is no clutch adjustment. the clutch is hydraulic, and self adjusting, there are several things that can go wrong with these. with normal wear the fluid can run low allowing air into the system, causing a weak peddle. they can also develop leaks in the master and slave cylinders resulting in fluid loss also causing a weak peddle leading to an inopperative clutch. check the fluid level in the clucth master cylinder(next to the brake master cylinder. if it is empty, refill it(it takes brake fluid) then cycle the clutch peddle a few times and check for leaks. if there is air trapped in the line the clutch will need to be bled. there is a bleeder screw on top of the slave cylinder, bleed it just like bleeding brakes.

good point but even if it is the cable one its automatic,hydraulic is non adjustable.if it is the cable operated one the clutch is mounted to the back of the flywheel,nothing difficult but you will need the round alignment tool,if its hydraulic it could have a dualmass flywheel which it is advisable to change thats a straight forward job to do is it a 1j chassis build 7th and 8th digit of the vin number

I did mine too and used the manual adjustable one as it should technically not wear as quickly as auto adjusting. No issues, no difference in *feel*

SOURCE: Need to make a clutch adjustment on 1991 Mazda B220 pickup

The clutch pedal can be adjusted inside the truck under the dash. You need a 10mm and a 12mm open wrenches to make the adjustments.there is a 3-4 inch threaded rod that you loosen the 12mm lock nut then you can turn the rod with your fingers or the 10mm wrench. Turn the rod so it gets longer toward in the direction of the engine. then start the truck and check how the clutch feels. when it feels right then tighten up the 12mm lock nut. If this does not solve the problem then you may need a new clutch.

I own a 2004 Silverado 2500HD, 6.0L, 4X4, manual transmission. After hauling a very heavy load of gravel (almost 2 tons), I attempt to engage manual shifter, and shifter won't go into gear; clutch...

Sounds like the pressure plate for the clutch is bad. However, I would mark where the adjustment is now so you can reset it to that position if the clutch adjustment does not fix the problem. I would then try to adjust the clutch and if no good replace the clutch, pressure plate and pilot bearing in the crank and then adjust the new clutch.

How can I adjust the clutch on my 2000 ply. neon

loosen the Adjustment screw on the Clutch master cylinder, carefully lift the pedal upward and connect the push rod to the pedal pin, Tighten the push rod adjustment screw, verify the the clutch operates correctly. (Haynes Repair Manual page 8-5, section 9 step 11 through 14) I highly recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on the vehicle ISBN: 978-1-56392-596-2 as it is possible that your vehicle may have a hydraulic clutch and if it does the steps to adjust the clutch assembly are more entailed.

I have a '91 stealth es. i need to know what distance should be from the clutch to the floor? Also i need to know how much free play the clutch should have. Mine has about an inch of free play.

thats ok as long as the clutch is operating well
as all this adjustment is to stop the thrust bearing from staying in contact & spinning all the time thus wearing it out prematurely!
if you feal you need to get it a liitle higher thats ok too so long as you have FREE PLAY1/8 to 1/4inch should be ok!

The clutch cable for your vehicle is an auto adjust clutch cable... assuming it is using oem equipment. if you tension seems incorrect you may want to pick up this Manual adjust clutch cable the auto adjust ones tend to go out and ruin your clutch. the manual adjust is a direct swap out for the auto adjust. if you need info on how to install please reference this site
