    Low clutch pedal

    So recently I have noticed that my clutch is much easier to push in for the first 3/4 of travel and now the enguage/ disenguage point is pretty close to the floor. Is this a sign that the clutch is about to go, or is it a problem with the slave cylinder. Maybe something else? I have an 02 WRX 110K miles, and i don't drive it very aggressivly. Thanks for any advice.

    The first thing I would prob. do is inspect everything and make sure the fluid level is full and you don't have any kinked lines or leaking lines...than I would bleed the clutch hydraulic system...start out cheap and easy..

    Could also be mounting points, have a friend pump the pedal while you keep an eye on the clutch fluid res... it should not move at all... the fluid inside can though... but not by much...

    If the fluid level moves up and down more than 1cm you either have a leak, brittle slave or master cylinder seals or air in the system...

    Is your car a JDM model? (right hand drive cars have the res on the same side as the turbo which we all know gets very hot and can cause the fluid to boil)

    THank for the heads up guys, Great idea to start out cheap. It was low on flud yesterday so I added some, and no change. I will have to get it up on the lift this weekend and take a good look at everything. I do not have the right hand drive version so that is not the case, but good thinking with the mounting bolts, I will certainly check that out. Thanks
