Alright... this might be a little confusing but I don't know any other way to explain it. I'm looking to adjust my clutch pedal for easier driving daily. Right now the clutch engages at the very top. There is no dead play in the pedal at all. My other 5spds weren't like this at all. A friend of mine told me you can adjust the clutch pedal so that it has some dead play in it and that way the clutch doesn't actually engage until further down the push.
yeah, i never really liked the altima's clutch mutch compared to other cars i've driven(01 mercury cougar, 95 mazda mx-6, 94 toytoa celica) the clutch is just too stiff and springy, the only other comparable car that has the same clutch feel as the Altima is a 97 acura 2.2CL that i've driven.
my clutch is bad and it still lets out all the way at the top of the pedal. its also very stiff (but i got used to it and its nothing now). i dont like the clutch and gearbox as much as i did my 87 Accord...that tranny was smooth as silk, and the clutch was very light...but i like the Altima's clutch pedal. now that ive gotten used to the stiffness, its no problem. it was weird at first though.
and the dealer here in town said that the pedal being stiff was a result of my clutch going bad...ha...seems like everyones clutch is stiff! no biggie though...i dont have to worry about the clutch long, my ACT SS is on the way!!!!
now im just hoping my GFs dad can help me put it in (and save money!!!)
i have a newlly installed trans( from a parts house about 50 k on it.) with new clutch, 1st gear is very low geared or so it seems/\\ it really suck to drive in stop and go traffic!!! i wish i could adjust it.
it def. IS adjustable because mine has been adjusted. my aunt bought the car brand new and like u said it used to catch at the very top. she brought it back to the dealer and they did SUMTHING so that now it engages more in the middle. thank god because i like it better this way.
my old supra used to have a racing clutch/slave in it so that it grabbed right off the floor..i got used to that!!
take it to a nissan dealer and tell them what they do to adjust it..thats all i can say..but it is adjustable
