Similar thing happened on my 94 Aspire. The bracket is made of several pieces of sheet steel, put together with spot welds. Every time you push the clutch the steel flexes. After so many times of pushing the clutch, the spot weld snaps from metal fatigue. I'm betting the replacement bracket you got was from a junk yard, so it too had been flexed alot. If this happened with your bracket, take the two pieces and line them up in their original position. Use vise grips to clamp them together and drill a hole for a bolt. A 1/4" bolt should be enough. Make sure it's short enough that it doesn't interfere with the travel of the the clutch or brake pedal. It's just about impossible to line up the bracket pieces and drill them when they're in place on the car. There's just not enough room to get a drill in and around everything under the dash. A flexible spring-type extension for a drill might work if you're lucky to have one. If you're a pack-rat, you saved the first bracket. You can fix that off the car and swap it out with the broken one. Either way you'll probably have to take out the one that's in the car now. You may want to think about disconnecting the negative battery terminal while fooling around under the dash. If you you slip with the drill and catch the wrong wire you could get unlucky enough to set off the airbag.

How do you adjust the clutch on a 1996 Ford Aspire?

Look on the end of the clutch cable, if you can't find it have someone push the clutch, theres a nut, 12 mm I think but mine turned by hand easy enough, unscrew to make the clutch engage closer to the floor. The exact spec has you measure the free play at the top of the pedal, I don't that info handy, you can do it by feel, trial and error.

its probable that the clutch is going and the reason why it works after you start the car back up is your giving the clutch a chance to cool "if even for a second" and the fingers on the pressure plate extend back out enough to do you some good....look into having it replaced.

You put a new motor in your 1989 Yamaha 125 dirt bike and it starts but when you put it into first gear it's not engaging any thought?

If it is brand new, it shouldn't be in the clutch. I would start with the basics. Check the clutch cable, make sure it's the right one. Check both adjustments on the lever and the clutch itself. If the engine is somewhat new, you can usually get away with replacing the clutch plates, spacer and springs. Don't buy the entire kit, they will try and sell you many parts that don't need to be replaced.If it has a bull taco clutch, the clutch will be on the right side. Make sure your barrings haven't locked up. Maybe you haven't given it enough gas, so try a hill when you get going fast enough let the clutch out slowly and give it gas.

How do you adjust clutch on 1993 Mazda Protege DX which has to be pushed all the way in and shifted carefully and hydraulic cylinder cannot be located under hood for adding fluid?

The clutch master cylindar should be right beside the brake master cylindar. I have run across a couple of cars that have the brakes on the passenger side but never the clutch. I assume this holds true for your car. As far as adjusting a hydraulic clutch, they don't. If the clutch is not pushing in enough, it is usually the slave cylindar which is located on the bell housing of the transmission. They get worn and need to be replaced.

How do i adjust the clutch pedal on a 1992 stanza it won't return?

I had it happen to me; had to replace the slave cylinder due to a leak, and the master cylinder is also leaking slightly, so it may need to be replaced shortly. Make sure the clutch line has enough brake fluid in it (you can check levels and fill it under the hood near the driver. Hope this helps.

Does the fact that my rx 8 clutch smell like it's burning indicate problems or over enthusiastic take offs?

If you keep burning the clutch, you will need to replace the clutch soon. You can burn the clutch in one take off, if you do it badly enough. Do not "drop the clutch" at ultra high rpm.

What is your problem when you put the clutch in and you can't put it in first or reverse?

Probably the clutch is not disengaging. This could be due to the clutch cable being out of adjustment, or the clutch master cylinder not having enough fluid, the clutch slave cylinder being worn out, or the throw out bearing being shot. Try to have a mechanic look at it.

Clutch sticks down when driving once in a while why?

May be clutch cable sticking, clutch lever on the gearbox sticking or the actual friction plate in the clutch sticking on the shaft. the latter would probably mean taking the gearbox out to check.
