Avensis Clutch Pedal

Recommended Posts

Hi all, sure this is not a new topic, but this is a new car to me and my first Toyota. Avensis 2003 5 Door Petrol. My wife's car mainly and she was moaning about having a sore foot due to the heavy clutch, I fobbed her off saying you'll get used to it. Well I got stuck in traffic today and it was a pretty unpleasant experience. it's not unpushable by any means but it surely can't be right. Toyota have been making cars for years, did they just get bored when they got to clutch on the Avensis and say oh that'll do? Anything you can do about I'd love to know.

Cheers Rob

your not the only one, i have a heavy clutch but most of my trips are on open roads. not many gear changes, 140k with original clutch.

if you search the forums you will find alot of topics on this subjects.

a new clutch master cylinder will solve it.

Haven't driven a petrol version, but my diesel one is neither light nor heavy. Don't know if changing the fluid may help. Previously I have associated heavy clutches with a sign that the clutch is about to go, although I cannot confirm this time. This was back with a petrol Escort with a cable operated clutch
