What makes you think you need to adjust it ??

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It was programmed to start in 3rd gear and the hill going into my shop is pretty steep and the clutch slipped coming up the hill one day? It works perfect when I manually shift it in 1st to come up the hill,just wanted to make sure I don't burn the clutch out....

OK
Is the clutch new -
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No The unit has 32,000 miles on it now with no major repairs?
Expert:  go-west.. replied 9 months ago.
Wow that's low
If the clutch continues to slip the automatic adjuster might be seized, keep doing what your doing with putting it in first and you should be OK
