Because the clutch system in the Aerostar is hydraulically driven, there is no clutch cable or linkage installed, and therefore no adjustments are needed.
In the event the clutch pedal develops a squeak or uneven feel when depressing, spray the pedal bushing assembly with a suitable penetrating oil and work the pedal back and forth.
Clutch pedal height is determined by the hydraulic pressure present in the clutch hydraulic system. There is no provision for pedal height adjustment.
If pedal height changes over a period of time, check the pedal assembly and make sure it is not bent. Also check the hydraulic fluid level and bleed the hydraulic system. Refer to the bleeding procedure in this section for an explanation on clutch bleeding.
It is not unusual for clutch pedal travel to increase as the clutch disc wears. In the event the clutch fails to engage, check the fluid level and bleed the hydraulic system before immediately assuming the clutch is worn and needs replacing.
Because the clutch system in the Aerostar is hydraulically driven, clutch pedal free-play is controlled by the hydraulic fluid in the system and is not adjustable.
If the amount of free-play increases over time, inspect the fluid level and bleed the hydraulic system. Refer to the bleeding procedure in the section for an explanation on clutch hydraulic bleeding.
