Clutch cables can either be really easy to change, or a pain in the rear.

Usually, it's a matter of simply loosening the nuts attaching the cable to both the clutch lever and the clutch arm on the engine casing, sliding it all out, getting a new cable made (Or making one yourself) and re-attaching it the same way it came off.

Most Mechanics won't charge much to make a new cable. I made one up today for a customer, it takes about 15 minutes with the right tools. It's usually cheaper than buying the cable yourself and cutting it to size too.

Be wary that the bike doesn't have a hydraulic clutch though. If it has a resovior next the the lever then it probably needs a fluid change as it might have air in the line. (There is no cable on these models)

Freelander clutch


check out the operation of the clutch system .IT is difficult to rationalise a hydraulic clutch because if it is slipping that means that the pressure plate is being held off and not fully engaging but it also means that when pressing on the clutch the there would be no problem changing gears . But if you have a cable clutch operation then it is possible that the cable is jamming inside the outer cover and holding the pressure plate off ( slipping) and gear problems. If it is cable then replace the cable first. If hydraulic then it may mean box out for a new clutch kit.

I hold in the clutch on my 2003 CR 125 and kick it but it still knocks like it is in gear. I just changed the clutch cable and it is still rideable so it is not the transmission. Clutch basket?


i would say the clutch itself could be worn out ? maybe you need to replace the clutch? hope this helps... i would say either clutch basket or clutch plates....hope this helps

I need to adjust my clutch but it seems like the adjuster by the pedel wont stay clicked in the spot i want it in


Unfortunately the plastic stock adjuster doesn’t allow for precisely adjusting the clutch cable.
You can purchase an aftermarket adjuster that mounts on the fire wall that enables you to adjust the clutch cable to any position you choose. It also eliminates the rubber grommet on the clutch cable that gives the cable a firmer feel, which improves shifting dramatically.
Steeda, UPR, BBK & Ford Racing all offer one.
Another improvement is to change the plastic adjustable quadrant to an aluminum quadrant eliminating any deflection during hard shifting.

Hope this helps.

Scenic dificult to change gears would it be clutch cable sretched or would it need replaceing


i doubt it will be the clutch cable but either the clutch is worn or what is more likely is the clutch cable adjuster, the clutch cable adjuster can be found where your clutch pedal is, it is prudent to replace the cable and adjuster at the same time,

Having release prblems with clutch on 2005 Elantra. new oe clutch, cut the flywheel and changed the slave cylinder. The pedal is too high not enough throw


Hello; The clutch is activated by a cable leading from the clutch pedle to the clutch housing between the engine and the trany. It is that cable that needs adjusting. If the pedle is too high to activate the clutch the cable needs to be adjusted to be shorter. That adjustment is at the clutch housing end not inside the car.

Hope that helps.

Renault clio clutch adjust


If the problem is just a clutch cable (clio 55 plate should be cable, not hidraulic), you can adjust or replace the clutch cable quit easily.

If the problem concerns instead the clutch disk, then you will need to put a car up on a bridge, empty the oil and fluid, and remove the clutch that is attached on the engine, on the right lower side.
This is usually not a job for home repair.

Clutch cable's change


If this is the same as the RS125 cable i changed then the cable goes into the clutch cover engine casing yes? You do not have to take the whole engine apart you need to disconnect the cable from the lever and then you will have to take the clutch cover off. before you do this you will need to lean the bike on its side as you will lose the gearbox oil otherwise. plus the cluch will fall out as it is held in with dowels and not bolted (stupid design) once you have the cover off then you can disconnect the cable. if your gentle when taking the cover off then u will not have to replace the gasket however this rarely happens you will deffianly need to get a new gasket about 4quid. reconnect your new cable and then put the gasket on and be carefull wen putting the casing back on the engine making sure you do not damage the new gasket.
hope this helps.
