Where does your clutch let out?

    Just was wondering if anybody else has the same clutch feel as I. Mine lets out right at the very end. I only have to push mine about an inch to engage the clutch. Last summer I had a problem with the tranny so Toyota replaced the clutch, flywheel, and plate (cost me around $700, lame) but still had a problem so they ended up replacing the entire trans (toyota paid this time, thank god) and it still feels like I should have to push the clutch in further to shift. At least all my other cars I ever had did. I was just wondering if I'm just crazy or not.

    thanks

    That is exactly how mine is and it's not a problem I don't even lift my heel when I shift

    Mine is a few inches from the floor... the ones that engage high seem weird to me. I guess it's totally what you're used to though

    Newly rearranged front end, sick Hurst shifter yo gives it lightning fast shifts, thats it more to come.
    Clutch pedal free play needs to be adjusted for those of you who have the clutch engaging way up top.

    Not quite sure which model year/years we are talking about in this thread but for sure 04 down have adjustment. As for the Toyota FSM in 06 that too indicates both pedal and push rod freeplay limits. So whatever ASE masterbator techs you spoke with are worthless i would learn to work on your own truck if these guys are master toyota techs then god help us all. Remeber that most of toyota's ASE certified techs are graduates from Urinary Track Infection (UTI). End Rant

    I agree fully and would give it a try myself since I do all the other stuff and retired from the industry w/ the basic know-how. Problem is 2 herniated disc in Thoracic region and getting under the dash might very well be my final attempt. Other reason is it's a 09 and still under warranty.

    Yeah back injuries are no fun from what my father says , he shattered a disc from a water skiing accident. Plus seeing as the dashes are very tight under toyota's you have to be a contortionist to set pedal height and such, i for one hate doing it but hey if it saves a clutch job im all in. Hope the above link helps some of you guys out with your pedal engagment issues.
