    Are u saying clutch pedal play is too long...?

    If yes,it is expected....punto has pump based clutch not cable based..and this is more durable...

    If it is tight...then it needs to be rectified..I hv no probs with my 2012 punto clutch./..better get it replaced entirely ..under warranty..
  3. Fiat's have a long play in the clutch. The fact that the clutch is hard is not right but the pedal is positioned higher than other cars. I think the SA you are talking to doesn't know his job else he wouldn't be giving you such reasons. You can't lower the gearbox. :A

    Another thing is avoid keeping your foot on the clutch once you have changed the gears. Since the pedal position is higher you may be facing such problem.

    Where are you based?

    raavs annaiya(bro),
    can you please post some pics of the raised or very high clutch pedal,so that atleast we can comment something on this ?.
    punto clutch has a long press and its very comfortable and ease,you can compare it with swift or indica vista.
  6. Hi Raavs,

    The high clutch is there for me from 2009 onwards, I have got used to it, maybe you are used to keeping your foot on the clutch after gear shifting try changing your driving style a bit and then you wont feel uncomfortable at all that's my view only.
