hey guys just did a manual converstion in my el,

the clutch pedal is sitting extremely high with the cable at no adjustment,

what can i do to try and pull the pedal down? it doesn't engage till level with the brake pedal and then travels about 3inchs further

Cheers Mitch

a modified auto pedalbox? Because a manual pedal box has a stop for the clutch pedal so it doesn't sit high like yours is

his problem is the clutch wont disengage until the pedal is inline with the brake pedal

if you pull the car dash board into diagnostic mode you will find in manual form its constantly in N selection(neutral) so just leave it bridged, my car for some reason starts in all gears, with the clutch in, im not worryed about it, no body drives my car but me, as soon as someone else gets in the driver seat s**t gets broken or tyres get worn out mysteriously so im not risking the f**k getting behind the wheel in this car
