I recently replaced my clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel on my 91 civic. everything seemed to go well until i reinstalled the clutch cable. now my cable adjustment is way off. Usually with a new clutch the cable adjustment is at the start of the threads, on mine it is just about maxed out. It looks as if i never changed the clutch. Im beginning to wonder if my clutch cable could be stretched. If it were stretched though, it would be a considerable amount roughly 5-6" as thats about the length of the threaded adjustment on the cable. Please help
My car has a manual transmission.
Hi there. If the cable was loose before you changed the clutch out and is loose after the clutch was changed out, then the cable is stretched. I recommend replacing the clutch cable and adjusting it to the correct pedal height. If you need further assistance with your clutch cable replacement, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
