High biting point normal or worn clutch? (Focus Mk3 2018)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just bought a second hand 2018 Mk3 Focus Ecoboost 1.0 (125HP) with 20,000 miles on the clock (one previous owner) and noticed the biting point is the highest I've seen in a car though I haven't driven many, it's a little higher than the Ka+ (2018) that I previously drove, and other non-Ford hire cars etc.

The clutch doesn't slip in use and I've tried a couple of the stationary tests mentioned around the internet to test for slip and it's holding/gripping okay. I've also read that in a hydraulic clutch a high biting point is normal and there's no way to adjust it. However I can't be sure if it's all normal or if the clutch is well worn and I'd need to replace sometime soon. What do you think? Does it sound normal or anything else I can do to verify?
