On-vehicle Inspection and Adjustment
1. Check to see if the clutch pedal clevis pin floats freely in the bore
of the clutch pedal. It should not be bound by the clevis or clutch
a. If the pin is not free, check that the ASCD switch is not applying
pressure to the clutch pedal causing the pin to bind. To adjust,
loosen the ASCD switch bolt lock nut and turn the ASCD switch.
b. Tighten the lock nut.
c. Verify that the clutch pedal clevis pin floats freely in the bore of
the clutch pedal. It should not be bound by the clevis or clutch
d. If the pin is still not free, remove the pin and check for deforma-
tion or damage. Replace the pin if necessary. Leave the pin
removed for step 2.
2. Check the clutch pedal stroke for free range of movement.
a. With the clutch pedal clevis pin removed, manually move the
pedal up and down to determine if it moves freely.
b. If any sticking is noted, replace the related parts (clutch pedal,
pedal bracket, assist spring and bushing). Reassemble the
pedal and re-verify that the clevis pin floats freely in the bore of
3. Adjust the clearance ?C? while fully depressing the clutch pedal
(with the clutch interlock switch) as shown.
4. Check the clutch hydraulic system components (clutch master
cylinder, clutch operating cylinder, clutch withdrawal lever, clutch
release bearing, etc.) for sticking or binding.
a. If any sticking or binding is noted, repair or replace the related
parts as necessary.
b. If any hydraulic system repair was necessary, bleed the clutch
hydraulic system. Refer to CL-7, "
Air Bleeding Procedure" .
Do not use a vacuum assist or any other type of power bleeder
on this system. Use of a vacuum assist or power bleeder will not
purge all of the air from the system.
Clearance "C" : 0.1 ? 1.0 mm (0.004 ? 0.039 in)
