On my 99 camry 2.2 4 cyl my clutch pedal catches all the way out. Is it possible to adjust it so it catches farther in?


Yes, there is an adjustment that would have the effect of shifting the point at which the clutch engages, BUT, that would not correct what appears to be your problem. As the clutch wears, the point at which it engages shifts, moving further outward until it will slip even though the pedal is completely out. I suspect that your clutch is nearing its end of life.Toyotas are such reliable beasts however, it would make sense to replace the clutch. I replaced mine at 212,000 miles, and in now has 289,500 miles and is still going strong. Hope this helps. Dano

is there an adjustment on my 97 golf clutch i doesnt start to ingage until the pedal is over half way back up i was wondering if there was an adjustment


You have a hydraulic line for the clutch, so it can be bled to remove air-beyond that, the clutch is just wearing, and it will get lower and lower until you will need to replace the disk.

clutch needs adjustment


as the clutch wears the "free pedal" is reduced ... its easy to adjust "free pedal" and important to do so .. when there is very little or no free movement above where the clutch engages/disengages then the clutch starts to wear rapidly ... if there are no other symptoms like clutch chatter, slipping or noise then the clutch plate likely has some life left if it is adjusted properly and promptly ..

Clutch rattle


this sounds like an adjustment issue. you did not mention the mileage...The clutch is released by a bearing, this release bearing needs to come back off of the fingers of the clutch pressure place, early wear and noise happens.

Near the end of the clutch life, you may find that you cannot release any more, if your model is adjustable.

Start with proper clutch release adjustment.

crx cable clutch problem


The clutch assy. is worn out. When a clutch is new the springs on the pressure plate sit flat. When you push on the clutch the springs don't have to move far to disengage, making it easy to press on the clutch pedal. As the clutch wears the fingers of the clutch spring move out, clutch pedal effort and travel increases to the point that the clutch will not disengage anymore. Along the life of the clutch the cable can be adjusted to minimize this. You have reached the end of the adjustment, sorry for the bad news but the clutch needs to be replaced.
