This is the 6 speed manual transmission. Is the drive belt, which works by the clutch, on the idler pulleys?

I was wondering if there was any kind of adjustment.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 months ago.

The clutch pedal rod is adjustable, but usually it would not change, unless belt is off a pulley or routed wrong.
