M59 Clutch adjustment
#1
I had a new (AP brand) clutch fitted yesterday. The old one was serviceable but I thought that while a new driveshaft was being fitted I would have the clutch done too.

It works ok but it bites as soon as you release the pedal ANY amount. The old one bit after perhaps 20% of the pedal travel.

Is there any way of adjusting this? I recall my Ford Mondeo Mk2 had an automatic adjustment of the clutch pedal. Does the Belingo have something similar, or do I just live with this and get used to it. It's also quite a heavy pedal press, but not greatly different than the old one.

Any advice or experience welcome.

There is an automatic adjuster built into the clutch cable midway down the cable. Look under the front crossmember just behind the sump and it should be there.
It may not be possible to get them to do it now with the "Lockdown". There are instructions on the net on how to do it, IIRC its a case of pulling the ends of the outer cable apart to reset the internal ratchet type thingy.

Borg and beck (? I think) clutch website has/had a good explanation on how to do it, even showed you how to reset it after taking the cable apart which some people think cant be done.

Then,  if it is not the original cable some aftermarket cables can be adjusted at the clutch lever end.

Not sure what vehicle you have but is the clutch not hydraulic, most of the M59 models were.

If you put your vehicle details in you signature we'll always know what vehicle you have!

Many thanks for that. I will see if I can "adjust" the adjuster. If not perhaps a new cable would solve the problem.

Sorry to forget this info. I do usually state it. 2005 Multispace 2.0. Definitely a cable clutch.
