My daughter noticed her clutch seems "higher" towards the top than it used to be.. Anything to be concerned about or have checked?

That is usually a sign of a worn out clutch disc. There is no adjustment because it is hydraulic. The hydraulics take up the play.

Hmmm? Do you mean the pedal itself it stopping up higher than it used to or it grabs higher up and let's go higher up now?


If physical pedal is higher look for a rubber bumper on metal arm under the dash it might use to dampen where it stops.


If no or very little free-play that's a problem as this should be self adjusted as an hydraulic clutch generally is.


If you can't push pedal (car just off) with a finger only and feel 3/4" or so of "play" the clutch is riding itself without touching it when accelerating mostly and usually on cable type clutch linkages. Out of adjustment or perhaps motor mounts allow too much motion taking up the free play - shouldn't with the hydraulic types almost certain this is but say if it isn't,
