Clutch Pedal - Adjustment Possible?

I searched the threads with no sign of a previous post on this topic.

I don't like how high the clutch pedal is on my S60R at the point of engagement. Has anyone experimented with adjusting the pedal so one's foot is closer to the floor during shifts? My old Peugeot 405 (hey, stop snickering!!!) had a cable setup with adjustable locknuts under the battery bracket. I assume that the clutch in the Volvo is hydraulic and I know nothing about making adjustments, or if they are even possible.

Thanks in advance - Tryg

Re: Clutch Pedal - Adjustment Possible? (tmtalpey)

I've actually noticed a HUGE difference in clutch pedal engagement on the newer 06 models . . . almost as if Volvo were listening to us. My 05's pedal travel goes to Pluto, and the engagement is very high, and very quick (which, once you're accustomed to it, actually makes shifting quickly a little easier). The newer 06's, I've noticed, have shorter pedal travel, a MUCH lower engagement point, and the engagement is much more linear than the quick uptake in my 05.

Driving an 05 (and an 04, for that matter) can be a bit tricky, but the 06's are smooth.
