If clutch engagement/disengagement is difficult or operating unsmooth, adjust the clutch cable by adjusting clutch cable adjustment nut until the desired free travel is obtained.


This cable type of clutch engagement/disengagement system is designed to have no free travel in clutch pedal. Adjust the clutch cable adjusting nut until the below adjustment specifications are met:

Clutch pedal travel for disengagement is 4.7-5.1 inches (120-130 mm)
Clearance between pedal and floor just before clutch connection 1.9-2.3 inches (50-60 mm)

When performing this check, the vehicle could move suddenly. Personal injury or property damage may result. Make sure there is enough room around the vehicle, in case the vehicle does move. Do not use the accelerator pedal, and be ready to turn OFF the engine immediately if it starts.

After starting the engine, Inspect if the clearance between pedal and floor is within specified range. If the clutch adjustments cannot be obtained, Inspect for interference of the clutch pedal. If no interference or obstructions are found, the clutch cable may be worn and require replacement.
