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.

How would you know if air is present in a hydraulic clutch linkage?

hydraulics work because fluids are considered a non-compressible material. therefore when you put your foot down on the clutch pedal it pushes the hydraulic fluid pressure through the line to disengage the clutch. if there is air in the line the air bubble will compress (gases ARE compressible) and you will feel a "spongy pedal" and you will have to "pump" the clutch pedal to move that air bubble down the hydraulic line before you get a "good" clutch
