open the bonnet, look to the right of the brake booster, pull the clutch cable,
and tighten up the bolt about 2+½ - 3 turns and give it a whirl.

you might have a stretched cable or even a few strands of wire broken or at the worst a fatigued clutch pressure plate.

as above... you'll notice a HUGE difference (also adjusts the pedal height)

ta!

btw I meant Nut not bolt.

Don't go crazy on tightening it... you'll end up pushing the clutch fingers in too far.

Your pedal pad height from the floor should be 137-143mm.
Make sure your throwout bearing has a slight clearance between it and the pressure plate fingers, the bearing's not designed to spin constantly at engine rpm, otherwise it overheats and seizes.
