Adjusting a 205 GLD Clutch

Post by maxfox44 » 19 Apr 2003, 00:12

How do I adjust the clutch. I've just replace the release arm after it snapped. Now the clutch pedal is right above the brake.
Thanks in advance

Measure the travel from highest point to the floor. It should be 130 to 150mm. If it's out, undo the lock nut at the gearbox end of the cable, then turn the adjustment nut backwards/forwards until the measurement at the pedal is correct. The clutch pedal will always be higher than the brake. Before measuring, press the pedal down several times.

Unscrew will lower the pedal, tightening will raise it - as far as I remember - it's a long time since I did one!

Thought as much. I think the clutch is almost knackered, so it will be a trade off between a slightly high pedal and a working clutch.
Wish me luck. Thanks

I've managed to adjust the clutch to a reasonable level. However, now there is a noise during clutch in and around the bite point. Does this mean its finally knackered? The noise goes after a few changes.
Any ideas, I don't want to change the clutch, as the car is going to the car dealer in the sky very soon
