I just had my clutch, pressure plate, release bearing, flywheel, master/slave cylinder and RMS bearing replaced on my Canadian 2000 996 C2 CAB. Now my pedal engages at the top of the travel (worse than my old worn clutch). Is this an adjustment (like the old cable adjustment) on the hydraulics or will my indie have to drop trans again?

RMS=rear main seal


No such thing as a "RMS bearing"

I would have them bleed the hydraulic system to the clutch slave cylinder again.  No cable adjustments or other adjustments.  Did they install the correct OE master cylinder?  I  have heard of some aftermarket master cylinders causing this exact problem.  Did they install the upgraded versions of the release bearing and clutch fork?

I installed a new clutch package, albeit a custom package to fit my LS3 engine, however, the entire clutch system is the same.  Like Joe said there is no adjustment.  In my case, I went from a low engagement position to a high one and everything was the same less 25,000 miles.  I didn't replace the clutch due to wear, but because a piece of metal got trapped between the pressure plate and the clutch disc.  Not sure you realize the pressure plate only moves about .040".


Anyway, I had a terrible time getting use to the new location of engagement and it was either in or out, now it is broken in and I'm becoming use to the new engagement point life is good.  Remember a high clutch position is better than a low one.  When you have a low engagement means a clutch job is probably in your future...
