E34 Clutch Switch -- HELP ! ! !
Does anyone have any experience in adjusting the E34 clutch switch?
I just went through agony replacing the clutch master cylinder in my 93 M5. Getting the brake-fluid soaked carpet out was a PITA as well as replacing the clutch master cylinder.
I was already to celebrate success for finally getting that critter bolted back in when I realized that the end of the clutch actuating rod that fastens to the clutch pedal is about 1/4" too short. That is, fully extended it doesn't quite reach the clutch switch.
There is no play in the bolt holes that fasten the clutch master cylinder to the pedal assembly, so I can't get the clutch master cylinder any closer to the clutch switch assembly.
The clutch switch assembly is attached to a stamped steel bracket that is part of the clutch pedal assembly and this bracket is not adjustable. Neither is the switch assembly.
The first thought was that the clutch master cylinder might have been the wrong part, but after double checking the P/N with the ETK, and comparing it to the markings on the one I removed, I found that they are identical.
Am I missing something very obvious here???? This is quickly turning into a nightmare...
TIA for any assistance/insight anyone can provide regarding any solutions to this problem...
