    If you press a clutch pedal in its pristine order, then that pressing will be nice and smooth. It should not be too hard or too soft. However, if the clutch pedal is hard to press, that means the clutch pedal is sick. A bad drive shaft, bad pivot ball, bad clutch cable, bad linkage, pedal blocked- are some of the typical causes of a clutch pedal being hard to press down. Don’t let your clutch pedal remain sick for a longer period of time. Rather you need to repair your vehicle’s clutch pedal to enjoy a smooth and safe ride.
