Soft clutch pedal after clutch replacement

I recently replaced the clutch and flywheel on my 05 6S and when it was all put back together my clutch pedal is was softer to push in than what it used to be for the last 11 years of owning this car. I used the exedy light fly and the exedy oem clutch so I have not idea if this is why the pedal feels softer.

Also, is there a difference between the auto and manual transmission upper mount? My mount needs to be replaced and all the ones I've come across would specify that it's for "automatic trans" only and the ones that don't specify have bad customer reviews that it won't fit the MTX transmission.

Bleed or replace the clutch master/slave. Sometimes they just don't bleed after a clutch replacement, but it is definitely worth trying to bleed it out first.

Thanks, I'll see if I can get my brother to help me out on this. I also noticed on brake booster there was some type of leakage around the master cylinder since the finish on the booster is all peeling up... I topped off the brake fluid reservoir a few days ago and so far the fluid level is still at full and there hasn't been any fresh leaks on the brake booster.

Also, anyone know any part numbers on that tranny mount? Is there a difference between the atx and MTX mount?

Like everyone else suggested. Bleed it out. I've done it before too and it worked.

The pedal should take less pressure to depress after replacing with a fresh clutch. The Exedy stage 1 and lightweight flywheel I put in a few years back reduced pedal pressure by ~70%... it was FANTASTIC. Unless you lost brake fluid when doing the install you shouldn't need to bleed the slave cylinder, but it couldn't hurt if the fluid is old. I threw up a DIY here for it on the other forum if you're interested: http://www.6crew.com/forum/showthrea...e-Install-3-0l

I would think there's a difference in the mounts. I ordered from Mazda when I replaced mine.

I'd qualify this. If you replace the clutch with a factory one then the pressure will be the same (I did this).
