Internal manual adjustment

Release bearing adjustment is made by unscrewing the ring lock plate bolt and removing the plate. The clutch pedal is then held down to relieve the release levers and adjusting ring load. The adjusting ring is then rotated to screw it in or out so that it alters the release lever hub axial position.

Turning the adjusting ring clockwise moves the release bearing towards the gearbox (increasing free pedal movement). Conversely, turning the adjusting ring anticlockwise moves the release bearing towards the flywheel (decreasing free pedal movement).

The adjusting ring outer face is notched so that it can be levered round with a screwdriver when adjustment is necessary. The distance between each notch represents approximately 0.5 mm. Thus three notches moved means approximately 1.5 mm release bearing movement.

With the pedal released, there should be approximately 13 mm clearance between the release bearing face and clutch brake.
