03 gt new clutch installed but grabbing too high/weird grabbing.


Well my old clutch(stock) was softer and also I think the grab spot was a little lower. Or maybe just cuz it's stiffer it seems that way. But can anyone tell me how to adjust this or fix it cuz it jerks a lil between 1-2 cuz I end up releasing the clutch a lil too early cuz of the amount of pressure required. Thanks.

Pull clutch pedal up towards you with your foot while in neutral. You'll hear a click noise. Push pedal ALL the way to the floor. Repeat one or two more times until desired adjustment is achieved.

This causes the self adjust to engage. I really have no idea what clutch you installed. The self adjustment will make it the best it can be. Anything after that you will have to endure.

Try this ^

If no luck - you'd be best off buying a new aftermarket quadrant and Fw adjuster. With those you can adjust to fit your preference.

Why clutch engages super low. I literally have to hit the floor with it before the car will crank up. I have pulled up on it with no result.
