How to Properly Set Your Clutch Pedal Stop


for consistent petal throw and clutch

feel setting a pedal stop is an

essential but simple part of installing

a hydraulic clutch release bearing for

release bearings without an internal

stop this process is especially critical

failing to set a pedal stop will

inevitably lead to clutch bearing and

transmission damage before setting the

stop lead the clutch system to remove

any trapped air only very light pedal

force is required when bleeding is done

correctly do not attempt to release the

clutch before the pedal stop has been

set once the fluid runs clear with no

bubbles and the bleeder screw is closed

you're ready to set the pedal stop with

the drive wheels off the ground put the

transmission in first gear without

pressing on the clutch pedal and attempt

to rotate the wheels slowly depress the

clutch pedal until the clutch disengages

and the wheels can be turned

don't push it any further hold it there

make a note of the clutch pedal position

and adjust the pedal stop to allow an

additional quarter inch of travel as

measured at the tip of the pedal not the

stop itself it will only require a turn

or two of the stop bolt this will

properly establish the clutch throw

limit tighten the jam nut or other

locking device to secure the pedal stop

in place and prevent it from moving due

to vibration for more information about
