Measure the pedal height from the asphalt sheet, except Tercel EZ models, on which the pedal height is measured from the dash panel. Pedal height should be as follows:
- Wagons and 1984-1986 sedans-7.13-7.44 in. (181-189mm)
- 1987-1990 Sedans (except Tercel EZ)-6.14-6.54 in. (156-166mm)
- Tercel EZ models-6.38-6.77 in. (162-172 mm)
- 1991-1994 4-speed Sedans-5.69-6.08 in. (144.5-154.5mm)
- 1991-1994 5-speed Sedans-5.51-5.91 in. (140-150 mm)
- If the pedal height is not as indicated, loosen the lock-nut, then turn the adjusting bolt until the height is correct. On 1987-1990 sedans with cruise control, pedal height is adjusted by turning the clutch switch (loosen the lock-nut and unplug the switch connector first). When pedal height is correct, tighten the lock-nut.
Push rod free-play adjustment is not applicable to wagons and 1984-1986 sedans.
- Check the push rod play. Push in on the pedal softly with your finger until the resistance begins to increase a little. Play at the pedal top should be 0.039-0.197 in. (1-5mm).
- Check the pedal free-play. Push in on the pedal until the beginning of clutch resistance is felt. Pedal free-play should be between 0.08-0.98 in. (2-25mm) on wagons and 1984-1986 sedans, or 0.20-0.59 in. (5-15mm) on 1987-1994 sedans.
- If necessary, adjust the pedal and/or push rod free-play. If free-play is not within specifications on wagons and 1984-1986 sedans, check the release sector and pawl position. If there are less than six notches remaining, replace the clutch disc. On 1987-1994 sedans, loosen the lock-nut and turn the push rod until play is correct, then tighten the lock-nut. Recheck the pedal height.
