I have the same issue as in the above thread. I read it and couldn't find a procedure listed with the post, or online elsewhere on how to adjust the clutch pedal. I may just be misunderstanding...

Background: Replaced my entire slave cylinder and clutch plate, etc a year ago. just had the lines bled. the mechanic who did all this gets great ratings for not over charging, etc.
Pedal seems to go soft/feel halfway depressed after sitting overnight, or long highway trips. Will go into gear, temporarily solved by pulling up from underneath the pedal, and pumping.

Welcome to FF!

Check this post from the end of that thread:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showpost.php?p=4682299&postcount=22

I'd guess at the first comment from that, missing/broken return spring for the clutch pedal.

Master cyl. might be a bit worn as well, if it's not dripping it should be OK with a return spring installed to keep it from dropping slowly as it sits.

P.S. - no adjustment of the pedal is possible/needed.

Must have misunderstood the post! I doubt there's a leak, I haven't seen any puddles.
THANKS!!!

You're welcome!

Not all of that post would apply, just figured it was easier to reference it than type the most useful parts again. (lazy)

I am frantically searching for a part number, anyone have luck finding it? Specifically that return spring.

Can't help with that, I used a spare drum brake return spring from something that was in the junk drawer. Weekend repair & all that was left of mine was the hook trapped between the base & the carpet (corner hole of the mounting plate for the pedals).

Cool, thanks!
