Clutch Travel

I have a 2008 e92M3. The travel of the clutch pedal seems a bit excessive, distance wise. How can it be adjusted. I think I have read a post about something like this before?

I don't think it can be adjusted. For the E46M3, you could replace the pedal with one from Mason Engineering, which reduced the distance and matched the height of the brake pedal as well; but I don't see anything for the e9x m3 on their site.

No adjustment..there isnt even a way for the dealer to measure the clutch as they do with the brakes

Could be the clutch is wearing out

Try a clutch stop. It's like $12-$15. That might help

Yeah, do the clutch stop. It makes a big difference. I bought the ebay one, do a search on here and you will find a link. I did the spring removal too and I really like it.

My clutch pedal has NO travel at all. In fact, I think that BMW forgot to put the pedal in my car! You'd think that they would have put in at least one, given that I bought the dual clutch version...
