Check the reservoir for the clutch fluid . If it's low, fill it, and then pump the clutch pedal several times to restore the hydraulic pressure in the line. The reservoir is located on the left side of the engine bay, not far from the firewall . Bleed the clutch system if filling the reservoir didn't work. As the system is hydraulic, air bubbles in the line can affect the clutch's performance. Fill the tank with clutch fluid, pressurize it, open the bleed valve that's located on the cylinder near the left side. Pumping the pedel pushes the old clutch fluid and replaces it with new fluid. You can adjust the height of the clutch pedal in your Ford Focus by looking beneath the dash to the top of the pedal. There's a knob on the pedal that you can loosen with an Allen wrench. Change the height of the pedal, test it out, and then retighten the knob on the clutch pedal. Look to the master cylinder and the slave cylinder next. If these are leaking, this might be the cause of the clutch problems you are experiencing in your Ford Focus. The slave cylinder is located near the clutch housing, on the left. Examine the pressure plate and flywheel which is located inside the clutch housing. As the clutch works due to friction, the flywheel and the pressure plate can wear over time, and no amount of adjustment or refilling of the reservoir will work.
