adjusting the clutch?

is there a way to adjust the clutch?
i was looking around under there and i didnt see anything on the master cylinder. i looked in WIS and didnt find anything.
its a 99 9-3. i want to make the clutch disengage more, i do not think it is disengaging all the way right now.

Isn't it an automatically adjusting hydraulic clutch?

I asked about my clutch pedal at a shop a while back and was told it's not adjustable because it's a hydraulic clutch and they are "automatically adjusting".

Whatever that means.

i know, but there must away to adjust it. i think if i make the back stop smaller it will work, im going to take a very small amound off to see if it helps. or i was thinking to put something like sheet metal to make it longer.

How far does the pedal travel before it does anything? Could it be a matter of bleeding it properly?

The back stop if adjusted too far down just keeps the master cyl from getting a new "bite" of fluid. Sounds like a worn clutch or air in the system.

The clutch itself being brand new has no bearing on the hydraulic actuating part of the system.

There were a couple of sentences I didn't understand.
"viggen pressure plate n was told that it wasnt pled"
What does that mean?

From what I hear, it does sound like there is an issue with your syncro at the very least. The shift linkage possibly, but that "grind from 4th to 3rd" and the problems getting it into reverse sounds like syncro issues.
When trying to get it into reverse, does it help if you let the car roll back an inch or so and then try again?

As usual though, when you have a major issue with a major part and you have JUST bought the car, you may want to consider seeing if you can get out of it. At the very least you have transmission issues of some sort. I've noticed you have 189 posts on the boards here so I'm assuming you are not new to Saabs, which means I assume you know "transmission" equals "mucho dollars".

How many miles on the car? How much did you pay for it? Can you get out of the sale? Or do you know someone who does your work for cheap?
All of the above should be considered.


Where in PA are you? I've got a friend in St. Clair.
