    I just made the adjustment and the shifts are less labored and smoother now. Thanks again!

    Yup, mine's much more enjoyable to shift too.

    1.)Does anyone know if the adjustment in the Picture is factory?
    2.)Also, will this void your warranty?
    3.)And does having a higher clutch point feel "really light"? l adjusted mine to the right and it feels like my clutch doesn't go all the way to the floor...feels really spongy?...not like when l first drove the car...anyone know what it could be? l don't feel a bite point at all and when l push the clutch in it feels like there is no resistance and makes me think that the clutch is not functioning correctly...is this normal? Thanks

    I would check the clutch free play with a ruler. The owner's manual shows you how to do this. If it's not within specs, I would let the dealership adjust the clutch for you. If it doesn't seem right to them, they will tell you.

    The Mirage is the lightest (easiest to push) clutch I have ever driven. It took some time to get use to it. Now, my Forester's clutch seems heavy when I drive it!

    You should be able to the push the clutch to the floor. If my clutch isn't pushed all the way down, the car won't even start. I discovered that quite fast when installing a floor mat incorrectly.

    Hello.
    I just created an account to this forum just to say thank you to Alpha_One.
    Have adjusted my clutch and it is very easy to adjust it.

    I just bought a GLX 2016 with very low mileage -around 25k KM. The clutch was very high and it's difficult to find the engagement point.
    Moreover, I am a junior driver so I got several time engine shut off because of this difficulty.
