My 2000 Forester clutch pedal keeps sticking half way up in hot weather. The clutch engages but cruise control won't work in the stuck position. I have to put my foot under the pedal and lift it; it pops up.
My mechanic has tried twice to fix it withour success.
I know the subaru clutch is notorious and there are a million postings about them here but haven't found this problem here yet. Any suggestions?

Replace the clutch slave and the clutch hose. This is a common problem. I would also suggest the replacement of the clutch master cylinder while you have it apart. Good luck.

On mine I replaced the slave and hose per the TSB. I still did not have enough pressure and replaced the master. Over 33,000 miles on the repair and it is still fine.

Thanks for quick response. I have now found several others with the same problem on this site. I'll print out the relevant postings and take them in to my mechanic. We're a small town and don't have a local subaru dealer.

98 Legacy GT....I had to replace my clutch MC and Slave at 89k, then again at 110k and now it's sticking down again at 128k!!!.......I had a new clutch to replace the origional clutch, installed at 110k also. This somehow doesn't seem right, 20k from a clutch slave cyclinder? I don't abuse my car, and I got almost 110k from my orig clutch plates, so I have to believe there is something inherently wrong/designed with the Subaru clutch Master cylinder/slave cylinder arrangement.....

what a pain in the neck!

You could have a small air leak or the linkage adjusted incorrectly, or just the worst luck I have heard of on these devices.
