Clutch only comes up half way and harder to get into gear. Help

ve have this problem, replaced the throw out bearing (was going bad), machined the flywheel, changed clutch, changed master and slave, and new fluid and new line but I’m still running into the same problem with the clutch sticking halfway down and have to use strength just to get it into gear. Any suggestions? It’s a 2005 350z

How did you have the dual mass flywheel machined? That may be a problem, as it's designed to be replaced if it's too badly worn.

Certainly the OEM clutch can't be machined - maybe it had already been replaced with an after market unit

The clutch pedal being half way means it has not been bleed correctly
(It may actually come right with usage - I've seen that happen)

The OP stated he'd had the flywheel machined in his original post, but his problem could be anything from air in the hydraulic line to incorrect installation. Guess we'll never know, as it's been over a week since he first posted this.

Had the same problem at 125K miles. The clutch plate had 3 broken springs. Stil had problem with pedal drop and had to return for replacement of slave cylinder.
