Clutch pedal high - possible adjustment?

Hi all,

Ever since I have had my 22sdi it's always had a high clutch pedal which often makes pulling off a little jerky which is rather annoying. Is there any adjustments that can be made to help?

Cheers,

BarHopper

Someone sells an adjustment kit on here, bet he'll be on in a few mins. I think they are for the 400/45/ZS tho, not sure about your model.

AFAIK 400/45/ZS have hydraulic clutches, 200/25/ZR have cable clutch.. could be due a new clutch cable?

I could be wrong

If it was low it'd need a clutch cable. High clutch cable may just need resetting (its self adjusting I think).

I will have a look at the weekend, I have never had a good look at the cable so will see what I find. Would be nice if I could make an adjustment only if it was a very minor change. It drives me nutty at times lol.

The clutch cable casing on mine was starting to fail and causing the pedal to feel sticky at points so I got a new cable .When you have removed the old cable there is a bolt with a lock nut on just above the pedal box that can be adjusted to lower the pedal then attach the new cable and it will set itself and your pedal will be lower.
