This applies to all models, Citroen C1, Peugeot 107 and Toyota Aygo 2005-2014

The clutch on earlier cars is a known issue and was replaced with a larger unit around late 2008/early 2009, the club store has the repair fix available, this 190mm item fits all petrol models and years and fixes the problem for good. shipping all over the world.

The club shop clutch in the link above is excellent quality and the same as the later OEM type.

This is the club official repair, and is excellent.

Some may wish to try adjusting the pedal, info show below;

could someone simplify this very simple drawing for me?
how do you actually do this? im guessing its just a cable attached to the clutch pedal?

the bite is really high what way do i turn the nut? tighten it or loosen it off?

Open the bonnet, and locate the clutch lever. Feel down the clutch cable and you will feel a round joint. On the joint, there is an adjustment wheel. Twist this to adjust the clutch.

Does anyone know the settings at the joint and pedal?

Hi Thanks for the info on adjusting the clutch,took five minutes ,cured the slipping .I think it must be a bad design there is no locking nut,so it will need doing again ,when vibration makes the adjustment nut move.Saved me a small fortune,thought I would after pay for new clutch.

regards pete

I posted a problem earlier but now the solution...

The diagram shown above does NOT show the gearbox linkage on top of the clutch release cable. It is necessary to removed the clip from the right hand link and swing it clear to the left. This improves access to the adjustment. In my case the black plastic "nut" was solid and unmovable. I soaked it in WD40 and with the aid of a blunt screwdriver managed to get it moving. This could have split the plastic nut but once free it was easy to screw back the nut and get the 1" pedal clearance. This DID fix the slipping clutch.

Anyone having ago should not be daunted by the cluster of mechanics and a possibly frozen nut. I find it rather strange that Citroen have not utilised a hex nut that would accept and spanner!? It took me a couple of hours to crack the problem but no thanks to the designers.

There appears to be a lot of clutch related problems which must be related to the relatively easy adjustment fix... Check that before any drastic action.

not gonna lie tried doing this today and dont have a clue at what im meant to be turning!

On the right hand side of the engine, left of the battery is the gearbox with the L plate on the top with 2 bars with rubber pipes on them, these seem to have plastic thumb screws on the end, is this it?

if someone could pretty please take a photo and point out the right thing that would be greaaat :)
