Adjusting clutch in T5

Hello, id like to adjust the clutch in my EA.

When i slot it into gear the revs drop so i presume the clutch is dragging due to insuffuficient travel.

I couldnt figure out how to adjust the travel, can someone help ?

Thanks

Re: Adjusting clutch in T5

Adjust the clutch cable nut in the engine bay next to the brake booster by pulling on the cable and screwing the nut clockwise...

It adjusts where the pedal sits, as in height.

Yea thats wat i found when experimenting.

But how to adjust the clutch release? Is it even adjustable? Is it normal for the revs to drop when slotting the box into gear (with clutch depressed)?

Re: Adjusting clutch in T5

Adjusting the cable as you have been told will increase the total travel and allow the clutch to release properly.
