Default Clutch adjustment?

I am new to the subie world, I have a 2002 Wrx hatch. My clutch is engaging at about the pedal being half way released. Is there an adjustment for the clutch? I know it is a hydraulic assemble but can anything be adjusted? Thanks in advance for any help!

Best bet maybe bleed the clutch. Not much adjustment can be made besides new clutch.

Subarus are known for there high clutch engagement. As far as I know there is nothing you can do.

Didn't someone make a block/spacer thing to move up the bottom of the pedal travel?

yes, some bright lightbulb on here glued a wood block under the pedal to limit the downward travel. don't do it... Op, yours sounds entirely normal. I wouldn't even bother bleeding it, there is no reason to touch it unless it has been worked on recently.

You can adjust the clutch master cylinder linkage to adjust clutch engagement point.

worst case scenario, you have a slave going out (which isn't that uncommon in Subaru's either).

Where is this adjustment located, up under the dash or in the engine compartment? Thanks again everybody

1) Unbolt accl pedal
2) Use 12mm wrench to loosen nut in picture.
3) Depress clutch (wiggle it by hand) as you turn the clutch master cylinder rod by hand
4) Tighten the 12mm nut
5) Bolt accl pedal

Key here is depressing the clutch back and forth to get the rod to turn, otherwise your fingers will just slide on the rod. Try to adjust the clutch pedal slightly below the brake pedal and report back.
