Clutch Cable

The clutch cable connects the clutch pedal to other components in the clutch. It allows the driver to disengage the clutch, which assists in smooth gear transition.

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Clutch Cable

  • Clutch pedal may be hard to press
  • Clutch pedal may fall to the floor and not return to its proper position

Clutch Cable Related Repair Advice

  • An incorrectly adjusted or faulty clutch cable can make the clutch pedal hard to depress or the transmission hard to shift
  • Instead of a cable, vehicles may use a hydraulic system or mechanical linkage to operate the clutch 
  • Incorrect linkage/cable adjustment or "riding" the clutch (resting one's foot on the clutch pedal, not allowing the clutch to release completely) can cause premature clutch failure
