There is no way to adjust the clutch because it is self adjusting. But if you are having problem this video will show you how to bleed and or replace the slave cylinder

Can the clutch pedal be adjusted to remove free play?

Hi horoderd,

Yes, you can adjust but make sure there is enough free play left, failing which the clutch is going to give you a lot of problems.

1. At pedal neutral start switch make sure the stopper rubber on the pedal is intact before attempting to adjust. Adjusting the neutral start switch would lower the pedal to reduce free play.

2. If you do not want to lower the pedal, the you have to adjust the master cylinder push rod length to reduce the free play.

Hello,

There is no adjustment you just pump the clutch pedal until all air has been removed (self bleeding) Here is a video where they replace the clutch and pump the pedal to get the adjustment

Is there any way to adjust the clutch pedal? I replaced the clutch and it engages only about a half an inch from the floor and this feels wrong since the old clutch was at the top of the pedal, or do you think something else is wrong.

Thanks
Paul

There are no adjustments on hydraulic clutches. There are clutch pedal travel adjustments on some of these but if the clutch is not engaging until half pedal throw then most likely there is air still in the line.

Here are some guides that will help with bleeding the clutch plus I attached the instructions below:
