I looked at it and there seems to be a threaded rod the goes onto the pedal with just one nut on the rod,
so u losen the nut but how the hell do i spin the rod 2 adjust the clutch grap point?? also cause i know someone will
ask the pedal is at its max out so i have heaps of room to play with. and the clutch is like 5months old.

Here's how to ajust your clutch pedal

You will need to remove the split pin or clip 2 remove the pivit bolt that holds the clutch pedal to the master cylinder shaft.
Now you will you have to undo the ajustment bolt, so you have full swing in the pedal
Posted Image
Now you should be able to swing the shaft off of the pedal
Posted Image
The shaft has a 6mm flat spot for a spanner or you can just use vice grips to hold the shaft wile you undo the 12mm lock nut

To ajust this in the car is a real back breaking job & I recomend you take out your front seat.

Just did this task thismorning. Not the easiest thing to do with a full dash and drivers seat still in, but it can be done with some determination. A very fiddly job to get right to the top of the clutch pedal, I used a set of pointy nosed pliers to align the nut and pin when putting it all back in. Getting the bolt back in was by far the most annoying part, swearing at this stage helped alot. I also recommend not going to extreme with winding the nut in or out, as only a few turns in or out has a surprising effect on adjusting the pedal.

Cam, it's as it seems. Bring the adjuster out to bring the pedals bite out more from the firewall. Wind in to go closer.

Cheers for the pics and descriptions Brad, made it alot easier.

Matty.

It's actually meant to take up MOST (not ALL) of the freeplay between the pedal and the hydraulic actuation in the master cylinder.

My car just came back from roadworthy and one of the minor stuff that needs fixing is the clutch pedal. The actual pedal is further back than the brake & accelerator pedal. So if I was to adjust that nut will it pull my pedal back into position or just change the catching point?

Want to be sure because I know this will be such a pain to do.

The gold bolt to the right of the pedal adjusts the height of the pedal

I'm amazed that you'd fail roadworthy for that!? My accelerator is always lower than my brake and clutch.. and clutch position is personal preference..

Easy to fix for roady and then adjust it back though ;)

Yeah some of the stuff it failed on was just plain silly. Better to be safe when pulled over then be fined for something stupid like that.
