High clutch bite


Recommended Posts

The broken facelift td4 I picked up had a really stiff clutch pedal that had very little travel. The clutch disengaged without a problem, even with the limited pedal travel.

I've replaced the master and it's got a nice smooth action now, but the bite point is quite high. It works fine, no slipping, but should I be worried about the high bite point being indicative of a worn clutch?

After removing the existing clutch I can answer my own question.

The service limit according to haynes is 5.6mm. The plate giving the high bite point measures 5.4mm uncompressed. The new AP plate measures 8.0mm uncompressed.
