This is a manual transmission Jeep Patriot. The clutch pedal is sometimes hard for me to depress. My left knee hurts at times. Is there any way (conventional or unconventional) to make the clutch pedal softer?
Any suggesstions will be seriously considered.

HI,

There is no adjustment on the clutch pedal to either soften or firm up the pedal resistance when pushing it.

The only way you could make it softer would be to remove the return spring, take it to a hardware store and have them measure the resistance on it using a special spring tool, then have them match one up with same length but slightly less resistance.

the resistance I am feeling when I depress the pedal is caused by the spring?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Coulsd you please describe how the spring may be removed? Is it difficult or easy to do? My skill level is intermediate. I know how to chain the oil and change timing belts.

HI,

You will have to disconnect the pushrod from the clutch pedal, then unbolt and remove the clutch pedal. The spring is tucked in behind a bracket on the pedal that you cannot get to it in the vehicle.

Let me see if I have a diagram of it for you

Ok. Please, let me know approximately how long it should take to remove the clutch pedal.Please, pardon any delays in my responses. I am about to drive to a nearby destination and texting while driving is illegal in Florida. I will read your responses.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
For.the sake of confirmation.... The manual transmission on a 2008 Patriot 2.4L engine only takes about a little more than two quarts of transmission fluid, correct.

Correct - 2.1 qts
