I put in a new cable and quadrant with adjustable fire wall mount to see if it would help. It can pop loose and float on the shaft. To test for this, all you need to do is reach up to the lever on the trans and pull it forward just like the clutch cable does when you push down on the pedal. Night mare. When I first pushed down on the pedal after installing the right combination I thought I must have left something loose, it was so easy I didn't believe it. I noticed that the cable going to the transmission was no longer connected, and the clutch fluid reservoir was completely drained. If the fluid level is low, fill it to the recommended level. Most newer vehicles with manual transmissions have self-adjusting clutches that require no adjustment, but if you have an older model without self-adjustment, you can cut down on the wear on your clutch disk by keeping your clutch pedal properly adjusted. 1984 Z28 Camaro 350 5 sp ~ 125000 miles When I press in the clutch pedal, it goes all the way to the floor with no resistance. This vehicle is very refined and runs well. The pedal provides almost no resistance; however it does return when you let your foot off. The pedal would go down quarter way before offering any kind of resistance. To get the car in gear I had to either force it in gear (this has to be bad for the clutch) or turn off the engine and put it in gear.

I don't have any air, and also have the damper loop removed with a stainless line. It just has an A302 clutch in it so it really shouldnt be that hard to push in. I have had this issue since I bought the car this year and this time after I forced the shifter into first gear the clutch went to the floor and stuck. If you are using the clutch pedal during shifts, the slipper will soften drivetrain shock during the gear changes as well. I can change gear - although the bite point is approx 1mm off the floor but its difficult. Press it down, there's no resistance. The clutch is a part of the car which is subjected to friction on a near constant basis which means that there are many ways in which it can wear out or become damaged.
