i'm looking at an '87 bmw 325i convertible with a 5 spd transmission and
have only driven newer stick shift cars. On this car the clutch didn't
engage til maybe half an inch before the pedal was all the way out. what
does this mean if anything? worn clutch, stretched cable? thanks for any
No cable used - it's hydraulic and may need bleeding.. can we assume you
mean it doesn't disengage or re-engage with the pedal 1/2" from the
floor? Could be air in the hydraulics, or could be a worn clutch. If
it's the clutch figure $1,000 to have it done, about $300 in parts to DIY.
