Q: Clutch slipping on manual transmission

asked by on

The clutch on my manual transmission is slipping, and seems to be getting worse. I don't know if it needs to be adjusted or replaced.

Unfortunately, the Mazda clutch is a hydraulic system that has no adjustments. If the clutch is slipping the clutch disc is most likely either worn or the pressure plate is faulty. The clutch system will need to be inspected and a new clutch kit may need to be installed.
