Fig. Fig. 1 Clutch pedal mounting. Note that the clutch is self-adjusting

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:

  1. Depress the clutch pedal and look for the pawl on the self-adjusting mechanism to firmly engage the teeth on the ratchet.
  2.  
  3. Release the clutch. The pawl should be lifted off of the teeth by the metal stop on the bracket.
