How to Adjust the Clutch in a Nissan Maxima


Even though the Nissan Maxima is known for its reliability, occasionally you must adjust the clutch. This is something you can do yourself, and save some money in the process.

Things You'll Need

  • Pedal stopper or an ASCD cancel switch
  • Clutch fluid
  • Tape measure
  • Wrenches and pliers
  • Check the level of the fluid in the clutch reservoir. If the level is low, then you should top it off to the recommended level. Pump the clutch pedal of the Nissan Maxima more than once to restore the pressure in the hydraulic system.

  • Hold the clutch down, and open the bleeder valve to bleed the system. Pump the pedal more than once to completely bleed the system. Add more fluid to the system, and you will find that the clutch of the Nissan Maxima will be adjusted.

  • Use a pedal stopper or an ASCD cancel switch. You can adjust the height of the Nissan Maxima clutch to 7 ½ to 8 inches.

  • Adjust the clutch pedal's free play in the Nissan Maxima via the push rod of the mater cylinder. After you have adjusted it, tighten the lock nut, then check to see how much the pedal moves. Adjust the free play 1/3 inch to 5/8 inch.
