This clutch is hydraulic so there is no adjustment. You are likely losing fluid at either the master or the slave cylinders and now have air in the system. You need to find and repair the leak and then bleed the system out which won't be real easy.

You don't. It hydraulic and self adjusting. As I said, it has a hydraulic problem.
