PEDAL HEIGHT



Pedal height is the distance between the floor of the car and the top of the clutch pedal pad. It should be 6.3-6.6 inches (160-167mm) and 6.06-6.46 inches (153-164mm) on later models. To adjust it, loosen the locknut on the stopper at the top of the clutch pedal and then turn the adjusting nut until the pedal height is within specifications. After adjusting the height, always tighten the locknut again.
