If you think the pedal is too stiff once the spring is out, like I said, lower the pedal. Will fix all of your problems

Just removed the spring. Unless you are in stop and go traffic with pencil legs, or have a 550whp pressure plate, do this mode now! Feels much more linear and predictable like others have said. The spring seems to assist mostly at the end but our clutches begin to disengage close to the firewall so this spring is torture.

So to all who liked this mod, good on you! I spent 6 months with no spring and decided it should go back in. The slop on top was just too much for me.

On another note, if anyone wants the spring back in, it's no easy task!

I thought the same thing too. When I bought my 2016 and took it for a test drive, I was a little embarrassed when I took it back to the dealership and all you could smell was the clutch. I had the hardest time engaging the clutch properly and it turns out it was just that stupid spring. Taking it out makes the clutch feel a lot more like my Ford Ranger. Which I like...

Just did this mod yesterday along with the clutch pedal height adjustment. I'm still on the fence. =/

a little background: when I bought the car I noticed the lack of clutch feedback but after 3-ish months of daily driving I adapted pretty well with muscle memory and relying on other things (ears, rpm, butt dyno) to engage to clutch.

anyone else in the same boat as me I'd recommend adjusting the clutch pedal height BEFORE doing this mod. I kinda wish I did and looking at Kronos's post I'm gonna have a fun time trying to put the spring back in.

I'll probably drive around without the spring for a couple of weeks though, who knows, maybe I do like it.

Can you elaborate on what you didn't like? The slop on top (I'm assuming of the pedal travel) isn't something that people have mentioned... Or at least I haven't come across it.

When you remove the spring, the pedal doesn't return completely to the top. If you lift up on the clutch with your foot, the pedal will come up about an inch or so. The spring pulls against the pedal and causes it to rest at the very top of its travel. When you remove the spring the pedal will rest slightly lower.

It doesn't affect anything though. If anything it removes some of the slop at the top by causing the pedal to rest at the beginning of its travel. As soon as you press on the pedal, the clutch starts moving. By using a spring, the pedal rests higher and will move an inch before it begins to do anything. You just don't feel it with the spring because it makes the pedal numb.

Also, doesn't most of the slop go away once the up switch is adjusted?

Thank you. I did not remove the spring, I replaced it. Your write-up made it painless!

...that E-clip was a pain, opted for flat-head screwdrivers over needle nose pliers.
