Do you have a firewall adjuster they might have played with a little not knowing what it was?

Did you or whoever installed your clutch use the OEM clutch pedal adjustment?

If they did it's really easy to accidently reset to the stock position by pulling up on the clutch pedal which could have happened during your oil change.

No I don't have the firewall adjuster maybe they could of rode the clutch out and the cable stretched? And for the Mp4 player I would think so but how do you reset it back?

Cable could of stretched but seems odd right after the oil change. Thats why I dont bring my car to places.

The clutch is now out of adjustment. The vibration isnt good. Theirs a nut on the pivot ball stud in the tranny. The more that vibrates, the better chance itll have to back that bolt out. Which did to me. The fork was hitting the pressure plate. Making a loud banging sound at idle and still when the clutch was pressed (not as loud)

I had to cut down a open ended 7/8 wrench and put my hole arm up in the tranny and guess where the bolt was and tighten it like 1/5 of a turn at a time. Sucked!!

Anyways, just turn the firewall adjuster in all the way, then feel the clutch pedal. Then go back turn it out a few turns. You want like 1/2 of freeplay in the pedal. Meaning if you just tap the clutch pedal with your foot the pedal will bounce alittle.
