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.

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.

There may be an adjustment bolt, called a stopper bolt, at top of pedal. Screw it out and pedal height will change.

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.

The linkage cable before the trans should have an adjustment nut on it. This controls the fork assembly movement. adjust the linkage to remove the pedal free play and this will also tighten the clutch.

When gasing the engine tranny slips


If you have a manual transmission it is time to replace your clutch. If you have an automatic transmission it is time for a transmission rebuilt. You can have your auto trans fluid and filter changed and this might help, but I doubt it. There is very little you can do for a slipping clutch in a manual tranny except replace the clutch. If you have a manual tranny with a clutch that is manual adjusted then the cluth may be out of adjustment, but I doubt you have a manually adjusted clutch it is more then likely hydralic.

96 Saab 900 Clutch Cable: Manual vs Self-Adjusting


just get the manually adjustable one. I just replaced mine today and I have a 96 900SE. the new clutch feels better and you only have to adjust it when the pedal has alot of "slack". that means that the pedal can be depressed about and inch before it starts operating the cable. anything more than an inch needs adjustment

Yes, there are two adjustments for your clutch available, one can be found at the back of the primary clutch master cylinder and the other one is the rod sticking out of your secondary clutch master cylinder. it's very tricky though, make sure to turn those adjustments a turn at a time. small turn makes a big difference. make sure to bleed your system afterwards.

How can i tell what kind of clutch i have?


Your clutch is self adjusting hydraulic design, when the clutch plate gets really worn the adjustment availiable runs out and the trans gets hard to shift, a clutch plate is like a brake shoe, the friction material wears off over time.

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 http://www.germanautoparts.com/Volkswagen/Jetta/Clutch/39/11 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 http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1569293
