2008 Tiburon clutch

Asked by Apr 25, 2016 at 04:25 PM about the 2008 Hyundai Tiburon GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Tiburon GS. I just replaced
the clutch about 6 months ago because it
was slipping. I took it to a shop the get a
stage 2 exedy clutch put in. The clutch
really doesn't feel any different than it did
before. The grabbing point on the clutch is
when its almost all the way out (about 1
inch from the top) and I've just recently
noticed that I barely have to push the
clutch in to change gears (about half way
or less). I can't find any information on why
this is happening. Help please!!

If the pedal is that high and there is no adjustment on the slave cylinder then the only thing I can think of is the clutch is already wearing out. As hydraulic clutches wear the pedal gets higher and higher until there is no more travel.

The clutch was brand new, I bought it myself. The clutch's grabbing point has never been lower down the clutch. It's always had a high grabbing point, even the day the clutch had been replaced! I also don't ride the clutch, or at least very rarely, so there's no way it's already wearing down with only 10,000km on it!

I checked my book and there is a rod on the pedal itself that is used to adjust the clutch. just loosen the nuts and you should have to turn the rod so its coming closer to the pedal. this should make engagement further down the travel of the pedal. Hope this helps.

That's for a tiburon? My friends step dad who's a mechanic looked and said he couldn't see anything! But he could have just not seen it!! I'll check it out!! Thanks!!

Yep you have to get right up under the dash.

So i looked under there and I'm kind of confused which nuts to unscrew! There's a bunch! Is it the one at the very end of the pedal? Attached to the master cylinder? There's two nits screwed back to back! Is that what i want to turn? If not, can you try to explain it really good for me? I know it might be hard to do that though!
