How to adjust the clutch?

Is there any way to adjust the clutch so that it gives a stiffer springy feel? This clutch bothers me due to the fact that it is a feather to push in and I feel like my shifts are very rough cuz I can barely feel the engagement point, I drove my friends subaru wrx around the area a few tmes today and honestly speaking I can drive his car better than I can drive my own car, his clutch is stiff and springs when u let it off and it's very smooth and easy to feel point of engagement, open to all suggestions, if there a way to do it or if it requirement me to purchase a new clutch or something let me kno...thanks, much appreciated

Could be the wrx is a cable clutch, but I know nothing about subbies. We have hydraulic, which I prefer.

Re: How to adjust the clutch?

Doubt it's a cable clutch I'll double check with him later but also another question, how would one go about getting a short shifter for an 04 5 speed and how is it installed? Is it difficult or easy? Thanks, but this is a good question I like the feeling of the stiffer clutch I think it's easier to drive...thanks again much appreciated

Re: How to adjust the clutch?

Almost all cars today run hydraulic clutches, even the VWs/Audis and BMWs. Have you done the slave cylinder mod? Just remove the banjo bolt from the back of the slave cylinder and remove a small black piece with a spring attached to it. That's the pressure relief valve. If prevents the clutch from fully engaging after dropping the pedal, resulting in wearing out the clutch during quick shifts. Just take it out, bleed, and shifts should feel more solid. Also, the catch point and feel will be quite noticeable. It's not too stiff, but it's just right.

Re: How to adjust the clutch?

How would one go about doing a slave cylinder mod? Is it difficult? Is there a write up on it that I could get a link to? Ultimate question is will there be a noticeable difference? Thanks for the input

i noticed it.... unfortunately i noticed a lot more clutch chatter in the process

also, if u want a harder feel to the clutch, get a lightweight flywheel/stage4 clutch combo...

Re: How to adjust the clutch?

hmm the best word to describe the way my clutch feels is exactly...Mushy haha...i need a more consistent feel and if getting an entirely new clutch is the answer then maybe i should just go that route however when i bought this car 2 months ago the clutch was brand new cuz the previous owner has just gotten it replaced due to slipping. how much would all of that cost with labor cuz i dont have too much to blow on something like that but i deem it worth it to improve ride and performance...also i think im gonna grab a sts off SFR very nice easy mod for shifting...ill do a search on the DIY forums thanks guys!

Re: How to adjust the clutch?

Remove the spring from inside the slave cylinder like Rio said. It will solve the slippage issue when shifting quickly.

Dlanes is right about the cable. Ours is hydraulic, so now matter what, it will be tit to push in. I suggest getting a puck style clutch if you want a more defined slip point. But no matter what, it will be tit to push in. My valeo ceramic sprung puck would grab immediately, so a quick (not fast, but quick) drop on the clutch was almost necessary to make the car not fall apart.

Once you go rotary, you never go back.

Shark Racing makes a short shifter for a decent price and it is very easy to install. Take a screwdriver and pop off the plastic around the shifter, Undo the four bolts on the metal plate thingy at the bottom , discnonnect the white thing (Sorry for not knowing what everything is called) Pull out the old shifter and pop in the new one and reconnect everything. The shift boot is harder to change than the shifter.

Re: How to adjust the clutch?

For instructions on installing the short shifter, click here: Short Shifter Installation Manual. That's the manual for a TWM Short Shifter, the procedure is exactly the same for any other short shifter, except that yours may come with bushings pre-installed (like the System Upgrade one I got from SFR did). It only takes about 20 min (as little as 10 if you've done it before) to install, some parts can be a b!tch, but overall it's pretty easy. I put mine in last month, but I can't honestly say that I notice too much of a difference, other than that the custom shift knob and the rubber gear boot (purchased separately) look sick.
