Default 96 brighton: clutch grabbing very high, but only 15k on it??

I just bought this car the other day knowing that the clutch was grabbing high and I figured that it was probably the original clutch and just needed to be replaced (car is at 92k). HOWEVER, I just found service records that show the clutch was replaced @78k along with the timing belt. There's no way someone put this much wear on this clutch in 14k so I'm wondering is there some sort of ajustment for the clutch in these cars? or maybe something else that could cause the clutch to grab at the very top? the pedal feels normal and theres no slipping.






:edit:should have put this in the Transmission section. my mistake.

where is the adjustment? I know of the one above the pedal, but i thought that only changed pedal hight not where in the swing of the pedal it engages (i.e. i can make the pedal stop 2 inches closer to the floor, but clutch will still engage in the last inch of pedal travel)

am i wrong? or is there another way nto adjust it?

if you look on top of the trans/engine near the firewall on drivers side you will see the clutch fork with the cable attached. loosen the lock nut then adjust the cable until it feels better then re tighten the lock nut against the adjusting nut and enjoy the improved clutch travel

^^^ Yup...the adjustment under the dash is for the pedal freeheight. The engagement point is adjusted on top of the transmission with the 2 nuts.

Glad you got it working good.
