Default Clutch Adjustment 1.8 petrol

Hi everyone.

Daft question...can I adjust me clutch pedal travel or is this an indication of wear. It has a very low bite point and I hardly release it from the floor before she wants to go.

No usual whirring sounds during acceleration indicating wear and no difficult gear selctions forward or reverse.

there's no adjustment available, it may need bleeding though.

a common fault but easy repair is failure of the slave cylinder mounting bracket.

No adjustment on mine. Check slave cylinder mounting bracket ( you need to remove the battery to see clearly). This can bend and fracture. Is the clutch stiff to operate? If so, then the cause maybe the rod going into the clutch housing starting to seize up causing the bracket to bend. A spray of penetrating oil frees it off. Clutch master and slave cylinder come as a sealed assembly on some models and there is no bleed. Simple to do if you catch everything before it all goes pop....

Sounds like it needs bleeding to me.

If the pedal was working normaly, a clutch that bites near the bottom of the travel has lots of wear left and a clutch that bites at the top of the travel is nearing replacement.
