Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra
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*

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.
