The X-Body cars have a self-adjusting clutch mechanism located on the clutch pedal, eliminating the need for periodic free-play adjustments. The self-adjusting mechanism should be inspected periodically as follows:
- Depress the clutch pedal and look for the pawl on the self-adjusting mechanism to firmly engage the teeth on the ratchet.
- Release the clutch. The pawl should be lifted off of the teeth by the metal stop on the bracket.
