Clutch Adjustment

Postby poppadre » Thu Jun 23, 2016 11:49 am



I had a question about doing the clutch adjustment on the GL. I am going to be doing my timing belt change next week and I was wondering if I should do the clutch adjustment after I change the belts or if it doesn't matter and I can do it now?

Thanks! Ill do this tonight. Picked up some offset wrenches yesterday for the job. Is the adjuster arm in an oil bath? Do I have to drain the oil first?
