There is no adjustment possible for the clutch pedal on the Pontiac Fiero. The earlier design pedals were problematic in that they could bend, preventing full disengagement of the clutch. You may also have a problem in the hydraulic system for the clutch. Check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder reservoir. This is the small, cylindrical reservoir on the driver's side of the front compartment. It is possible that you have a fluid leak in the clutch system. This can cause the same problems as an improperly adjusted clutch pedal on vehicles with an adjustable pedal. You may also have a defective master or slave cylinder. I suggest picking up a service manual at your local auto parts store, they go through everything the average car owner needs to know about their specific vehicle including extensive information on inspecting, repairing, and replacing clutch components. You don't necessarily need to replace your clutch pedal if it is bent. Rodney Dickman ( sells an adjustable banjo that will fix your problem. It also allows fine adjustment for perfect disengagement. If you want the pedal replacement go to In any case, make sure your hydraulic system is working properly before messing around with the pedal. Good luck! If you have further questions, I suggest looking through the archives at Pennock's Fiero Forum ( by using the search feature. You can also post in the Technical Discussions & Questions section. The people there are very helpful and you should get a response within a day if not hours or minutes.

All the information I can find says the same thing. There is no adjustment for clutch cable or linkage due to the system is hydraulically driven.

Is there an adjustment on the clutch pedal for the line on a 93 Geo Metro the transmission does not engage properly and the adjustment on the engine is out all the way?

Your adjustment isn't on the pedal, it's an adjusting nut on the end of the cable on the transmission. If the adjustment on the "engine" (do you actually mean the cable on the transmission?) is out all the way, then it is time for a new clutch. Just read the listings on here for clutch removal. It should only take about 30 minutes unless you are a complete idiot, then it will be about 12 hours.

How do you adjust freeplay on clutch pedal in a 1990 Toyota celica gt?

If you have a reservoir for the clutch fluid , then it's HYDRAULIC. Some vehicles have hydraulic clutch master and slave cylinders, which require no periodic adjustment after initial installation. Other cable-operated systems have a self-adjusting mechanism built into the clutch pedal mechanism to eliminate the need for periodic adjustment. But the majority of cable-operated clutch systems do require periodic adjustment. It is easy to do and can be followed step by step with pictures in a CHILTON or Haynes manual. Hope this helps.

Inspect the condition of clutch pedal rubber stop, if damaged or missing install a new one. Where necessary, disconnect interlock clutch rod at transmission end. Adjust clutch linkage by turning self-locking adjustment nut to provide 5/32" free movement at outer end of clutch fork. This adjustment will provide the required one inch free play at the pedal. Reassemble interlock rod if used.

1984 Pontiac fiero clutch pedal is hard?

if you have already tried to spray lube where the clutch pedal pivots, it is possible that when someone removed the engine the slave cylinder line was pinched or kinked. It is also possible that someone has jacked up the drivers side rocker panel and pinched the line there. try following the line from the slave all the way up to the front. If nothing is visible then it may be the shaft the clutch moves on which requires the removal of the transmission to inspect.

If you notice slipping when starting off or changing gears after the clutch is completely released, if the pedal rises almost to the top before the clutch engages, if you have difficulty changing gears, or if when you press the clutch the clutch does not disengage completely.
