Thumbs down how to: adjust clutch pedal height

hey, i thought I might as well put a simple 'how to' for adjusting the clutch pedal height as mine was ridiculously high...



There is a 10mm bolt that needs to be tightened to bring the pedal down (arrowed in red). It helps to push the pedal down with one hand and feel up there and slip on a 10mm wrachet socket. It requires quite a lot of tightening before it even starts to adjust the pedal angle....

how this helps someone out there!

well i have heard horror stories of small children being made to climb up into the pedal assembly area to tighten those bolts with very little pay...

but dont worry if you cant afford one, simply lie on the ground upper body in the foot well and you should be able to reach up in there, using other hand to push down the clutch pedal....

This is how I did mine Feet either side of the headrest, shoes off of course.
Also what I needed to do when fitting my central locking to the 5AS.
