Clutch bite point changes
Posted 26 November 2014 - 09:46 AM
Sometimes when I'm driving the clutch bite point is in what I'd describe as a normal position, (a few inches off the ground) and then other times be just a few centimeters. It's not the case of after it warms up it stays in one position or another appears random.
Would anyone know the cause the fix?

Lack of fluid in master cylinder - leaking master cylinder / slave cylinder.
+1 only thing I can think of that would cause it to change.

Only other thing is if the pressure plate is starting to fail but that should be consistent

You should be able to pick up the whole lot (both cylinders, new brake fluid, and maybe the rubber hose on the slave cylinder) for under $100 - not a bad idea to replace the lot anyway if its a bit "iffy" and treat it as preventative maintenance. Cheaper than a towtruck when it fails completely (which it may well do at the most inconvenient time).

Fix is to buy new cylinders, fit them and bleed the system.
Don't forget to bleed the master cylinder as well
