How to Adjust the Clutch in a Plymouth Neon


There may come a time when you might have to stop driving that fun-to-drive Plymouth Neon of yours and adjust the clutch. You can often trace clutch issues to the clutch cable. Fortunately, this is something you can tackle yourself.

  • Check the clutch cable of the Plymouth Neon if your clutch pedal feels as though it needs adjusting. There may be an issue with the self-adjusting clutch cable in your car.

  • Look at the path that the clutch cable of the Plymouth Neon travels from the transmission to the firewall. Look for any kinks or the curves to look less gentle than they should appear.

  • Inspect the clutch cable where it ends inside the transmission of your Plymouth Neon. Open the access hatch that's made of black plastic and look inside. You should see the washer and brass ball, which forms the end of the cable that is located in the actuator fork's crook.

  • Search for any frayed ends on the clutch cable of the Plymouth Neon. This could be the reason why your clutch pedal feels as though you must adjust it. Make sure that that any parts, like the nut or the end of the cable itself, didn't fall into the bell housing, which could damage components of the clutch.

  • Pull on the cable if the clutch cable appears loose in your Plymouth Neon. By doing this, you cause the pedal to adjust itself. You should hear a few "clicks" and the cable will take up some slack.

  • Replace the cable if there is any wear or if the cable breaks. When this happens, the clutch cable will no longer be able to adjust itself.
