I've looked around but I haven't found anything. Can you adjust the height of the clutch pedal? I don't like having to raise my foot so high, it's uncomfortable. Is there a way to get rid of some of the play in the clutch pedal, maybe not have to push it so far? I don't know anything about this so please forgive my ignorance n stuffs. Thanks.

I believe that our manual trannies have non-adjustable clutches...I hate to say it (as I had this problem before) but the only adjustment is the height of your seat!

There is no adjustment on our hydraulic clutches. It's not something you can "fix" by going to another manufacturer either. There is no adjustment on anyone's hydraulic clutches. The closest thing you'd get to adjustable pedals would actually be in a Ford- if there were manual transmissions offered on F-series trucks any more. Unfortunately, there's no such critter. I'm not even sure if the adjustable pedals was an option on manual transmission trucks.
Even if your clutch did engage lower, you'd still have to take your foot off the pedal if you want your clutch to last a long time. Mine has been going for 120k, I hope to reach 160k.

Posted via FF MobileYeah, pedal height adjustment (where available) moves the whole pedal assembly - really no different than moving the seat back a bit, then adjusting the steering wheel to fit. Sometimes you run out of adjustability B4 getting comfortable, so the more adjustments & range avail. the better. Re-engineering the clutch assembly to change the leverage is the only way to get less travel, and that makes it stiffer & touchier - something that was originally engineered to work easily for the average driver....

i usually rest near our fake dead pedal.
piviot my foot on my heal and place the ball of my foot on the clutch pedal . then i just perform a walking motion with my foot and i find that keeps my leg low and the weight on the clutch pedal instead of supporting my own leg.

[werd] they pretty much have manual trannies figured out to a science...there might be a problem with the clutch fluid or slave cylinder.
This is a long shot, but maybe check your tire pressures, this sounds crazy but I notice that the clutch has a lower point of engagement when my pressures are low. Worth a shot and it's free :)
