    difficulty starting my subby!

    i have an 02 WRX and lately ive been having a real probably getting it started. i have to pretty much slam my foot on the clutch, sometimes 2-3 times (like im gonna put my foot through the firewall or something) just to get the car to turn over... is it a clutch adjustment problem? or ... ?

    Any help would be appreciated, a picture, or where i would adjust that...

    theres 100,000 kms on it now

    Their is typically a clutch sensor that wont allow the car to start unless it is switched on. This is what it sounds like to me, you can probably pick one up at the dealer for fairly cheap. Search this site and look for people whom have had the same problem, im sure their are a few.

    +1 on what he said. There's a little button on the floor under the pedal. It may be worn out, or it could be as simple as the floor mat getting between the clutch pedal and the button.
