Re: --Clutch issue--

Its ur clutch master cylinder... Its really not too hard to change, more of a pain in the butt. I changed mine in a drive-way, at 7pm, with 1 flashlight. It took me longer to bleed the clutch system than it took me to replace the master cylinder. Adjusting the clutch pedal is also a big thing ppl ofter over look. I FINALLY got mine adjusted right after almost 2 months, and it went from slipping and burning the clutch if i released the pedal too quick, to chirping the tires when I shift fast from 1st to 2nd at 4k rpm's

Re: --Clutch issue--

its not hard, but its just such a tight space to work with, and you gotta be in some pretty awkward positions. i'm a small dude with some small hands, and the cotter pin on the outside of the pin holding the piston to the pedal was a fukcing PITAAAAAA for me. other than that, its self-explanatory.

Re: --Clutch issue--

there's a 12mm nut on the rod assembly by the pedal. I don't know which way you gotta turn it, but u might need a pair of plier to do it. It pretty much adjusts the height of the pedal for engagement of the clutch when u start letting it out.

A new one shouldn't be more than $40
