The master clutch cylinder is attached to the clutch pedal. When one depresses the pedal hydraulic fluid is forced from the master cylinder through the hard line to the slave cylinder. The piston in the slave cylinder is driven against the clutch linkage thereby releasing the clutch.
Yes. If either cylinder or the line fails, you lose the clutch pedal. Slave cylinder is a good place to start.
The clutch itself cannot be adjusted in any car that I know of, what is adjustable is the clutch pedal. In 95 Accents you can adjust the pedal height by losening the nut that holds the rod that connects the pedal to the clutch cylinder, then you just have to give it a few turns until the desired pedal height is achieved. Don't forget to re-tighten the nut again and you are done.
When you push the clutch pedal in , it is the hydraulic system that operates the clutch slave cylinder that disengages the clutch disc
replace the bushing where the clutch pedal attaches to the master cylinder arm.
Make of vehicle would help, but almost all clutch master cylinders are beside the brake master cylinder on the drivers side of the engine compartment on the firewall. The clutch is the one closer to the center of the car. There will be a pin on the inside that connects the rod in the master cylinder to the clutch pedal and two or four bolts holding it to the firewall.
Fault with clutch master cylinder.
The adjustment is made on the clutch cable, near where it connects to the tranny.
