Hi everyone just bought a 2002 Cooper S what a wee weapon love it.....i'm not sure this is a problem or not the biting point of the clutch seems very low to me almost at the floor,ive stalled the car a few times as a result,i know coopers have a hydraulic clutch is it possible to adjust the biting point or is this something more serious....
thx for the reply man if what i understand about the clutch slave you have to practically remove it to bleed it using a kind of puller to compress the piston wonder if the slave is on the way out and thats causing the low biteing point its really annoying when trying th change smoothly
Yes a low bite is good, a high biting point means the clutch is more worn, it is not the symptom of needing bleeding, you may find the pedal hard to push down, if so welcome to the cooper s, that is normal as well, enjoy your car
If you remove the left front tyre and wheel, you can reach the slave cylinder bleeder. Have someone pump clutch as you bleed just like brakes. Might as well bleed brakes too as the fluid is from same reservoir.
