    Clutch pedal too high?

    I'm learning how to drive stick on a 2014 500C GQ and I'm having issues with the clutch pedal. I have to push my foot up so high that it hurts to put it over the clutch. I've never had such an issue with the brake or gas pedals on any car before but this pedal is up higher. If I adjust my seat back to get my foot more comfortable, I have to fully extend my leg with my toes to press it all the way down so I'm too far back. Is there a way to adjust the clutch on a GQ where it sits a little further down? Thanks.

    5'6.5" and I wear a 6.5-7 women's shoe. I'd like to if possible adjust the clutch so it sticks out around the same height as the brake and gas. I'm thinking of taking my car to the FIAT dealership near my apartment and asking their service department about it.

    This is the interior of my car where you can see the clutch pedal and how it sticks up past the break/gas.

    If I could get it closer to something like this, I think it would help a lot.

    Have you adjusted the seat all the way down? You can raise and lower it..

    I don't believe the clutch is adjustable. But you can adjust the seat up and down which might help. Also the engage point for the clutch is not all the way down you can push it about 3/4 of the way down and you have engaged the clutch (maybe less) So see if you can't find a position that's comfortable where you can depress the clutch enough to engage 100% of the time.

    Thank you. I've adjusted the seat and that has helped a little bit. The guy at the dealership said it's a little higher than the brake as a safety thing so you don't accidentally step on the brake thinking it's the clutch. I'm getting a little better learning stick. I just take too long to find that spot on the clutch that engages with the gas.. like you have to press it down a little bit first before you reach that point. So I have to lift my leg and find the clutch pedal and then press in a little bit to find that spot to start pressing on the gas. It is taking me what feels like forever to get my car moving and that won't be good in traffic. I am still doing my laps in the empty parking area for now. lol Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my car. I just need to be patient. I can't wait to get this down so I can really drive it. My bf is having a blast with it right now.

    Learning can be frustrating, But once you get it down its more rewarding than just putting the car in drive and going. Keep at it learn that engage point and you'll be loving it in no time!
