Can you adjust a hydraulic clutch?
The only way to adjust a hydraulic clutch is by adjusting the length of the slave-cylinder pushrod. It will turn into flexible hosing as it connects to the slave cylinder. Inside this piece is a seal, piston, rubber boot, push rod, locking nut, and adjustable nut.
How often should most hydraulic clutches be adjusted?
Typically, a manual-adjust clutch will need to be re-adjusted a minimum of 13 times through its lifecycle. If just one adjustment is missed, the clutch may have to be taken out of service well before its intended lifespan.
Do you have to bleed a hydraulic clutch?
Most hydraulic clutch systems have their own dedicated master cylinder; however, some vehicles use one master cylinder for both the brake system and the clutch system. Any time you open the hydraulic system you will need to bleed it to remove air pockets.
How do I know if my clutch needs adjustment?
If you notice any of the following signs below, your clutch could be going bad.
- Acceleration Problems. Oftentimes, a clutch that is wearing down won’t catch, and you will end up with acceleration problems.
- Hard Gear Shifts.
- Slipping Clutch/Gears.
- Squeaking/Grumbling Noises.

How do you bleed the air out of a clutch?
To remove the air from your clutch system you need to push or pull the air down through the fluid line to the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder. To keep things clean you should attach a tube to the nipple on the bleeder valve. If you use a clear tube it can be easy to see when all the air has exited the system.
Why is my clutch biting point so high?
A bite point that is high up the clutches working travel (close to where the clutch stops before removing your foot) may be an indication that the clutch is worn and close to need replacing. This is only an indication however as it may simply need adjusting as every cars bite point is in a different location.
How do I get the pressure back in my clutch?
