has anyone tried this, read your manual and it says to take your foot and lift up from under the clutch pedal until it stops then push in on the clutch and you should hear a click. just wondering.

I've tried that, but it doesn't seem to work. Maybe I'm not pushing my foot up enough, or maybe I'm too deaf to hear the click. My clutch seems to need adjusting though! If I leave the tranny in neutral, and let out the clutch, I can hear it barely engaged and rubbing. It has developed over the last few 100 miles. Almost time for another oil change, so I'll get them to look at it then.

the tranny will be spinning with the clutch engaged in neutral, that's normal. You are hearing the transmission whirring down there.

Yes, but it shouldn't be rubbing. It never did that new, and it only started the last few 100 miles (I have 9000 miles). Every other manual tranny that I've had never did that either. Weird. It hasn't seemed to affect anything, but it just doesn't sound right.

I've got over 8000 miles and i've noticed that it engages more than half way up now, when it was new it engaged about an inch or two from the floor. i think it definately needs adjusting but i can't get it to do it.

When they work, they aren't the most accurate anyway. Consider an adjustable cable and quadrant are a must as the car gets older. A pain in the ass to install sometimes, but well worth it.

they don't need to be adjusted this soon.
usually 20,000 or so miles.

the click is really loud when you hear it.

bingo...unless there is a problem.....the clutch doesn't need adjustment yet so you will not hear any adjustment when you perform that procedure
