First thing I would do is check if its cable or hyd. If it is a cable, check to see if clutch cable housing is not rusted up causing cable to bind up.If pressure plate is warped it could cause it to be stiff

first undo all the nuts that hold the clutch housing, then remove it. next undo all the bolts holding the clutch in place, remove clutch and put new one in place, replace bolts & tighten them very tight. next screw on the clutch housing (the nuts don't need to be as tight). Easy really, piece of cake in fact

Check the Clutch Tension in the book there should be some specs as to how tight it should be. It sounds like you have gotten it too tight.

The '96 200sx has no fluid for the clutch. This car has a cable operated clutch that needs to be adjusted. If the cable breaks the clutch will not disengage. If the clutch is getting tight it will need lubed. If lubing the cable doesn't work a new cable is needed.

The clutch cable for the Citroen Berlingo could be snapping due to a sharp turn in the cable, or due to the clutch having a problem. Make sure that the clutch is operating smoothly, and the cable does not have any tight turns that might cause a kink in the system.

Basically all you gotta do is, at a stand still go to first gear, hold.in the clutch. Rev the engine to about 4-5 thousand. Simultaneously let out the clutch and floor the accelerator. Or... Rev up to the red and dump (lift clutch up very quick) the clutch, then hold on tight, be careful when reving to the red, too often could sheer the engine mounts or blow the cam which will cause the head to fail.

i hear the brine clutch is very good for attack and midfield and it is very reasonably priced. get the first clutch though its the best

Usually if there is no indication of clutch wear, such as slippage, yet with the clutch completetly depressed it's hard to engage gears and the clutch engages very quckly

Same as for the brakes. Locate the bleeder, slack it and re tighten. Have someone pull in the clutch and hold, you release the bleeder, then tighten it while the clutch is still held in. Once the bleeder is tight, release the clutch and repeat till all the air is out. Make sure to refill the fluid.

There is no adjust on an AC clutch, it is a good or bad situation. The clutch is activated magnetically. If it is th ebelt you are asking about it should be kept tight by the belt tensioner. If it is still squealing, change the belt, if no help change the tensioner.

There is no adjustment on a hydraulic clutch. They engage at the very end of the lever release.

The clutch will be very loose and it will be hard to come out of any gear.

Very, my friend, VERY...

I believe that a 2001 Focus will have a hydraulic clutch. If so, there is no adjustment required... In other words, or to add, if Your clutch is catching very high up, you may need a new clutch. Check hydraulic fluid if catching very low.

"Riding the Clutch" and a good way to burn it out. Also: a very bad habit
