Hi all, i have a 1997 P reg. Rover 414 Si 5 door hatch 43,000 genuine miles, my insurance company has just spent £1600 on it, getting the front end fixed following a stupid shunt, all my fault LOL.

Not related to the shunt, my Clutch pedal is very high, mechanics who have had a look say that everything looks as it should, so what can i do to make it like it should be please, as a last resort i shall have to goto a Rover Dealer, happily somebody else on this board has recomended a non ROVER garage near to where i work and i would need them to plug it into there computer as well, because the petrol consumption is rubbish :(

When you say the clutch pedal is very high, do you mean physically or the bite point... As the pedal is just a metal lever then to be physically high it would have to be bent or something along those lines.

I think he means physically, but arent most clutch pedals just that little bit higher than the brake pedal. or can they be made to be level with them?

what is an "RT" 400, i guess that is technical jargon lol.

the Clutch behaves as normal so i guess it cant be the Master Cylinder ????

the pedal is much too high, although while pressing it down there is a small movement downwards before it does anything but not very far at all.

i've just had a brilliant idea i shall take a picture of it !!!!!!! then you will see first hand how much too high it is, ok.

thanks for your ideas.
