We don’t want any mishaps yet because at this stage we are doing well.–Press the clutch in (left pedal) with the left leg and hold it down.-Make sure the handbrake is fully on.Anytime you put your hand brake on always make sure it is fully on, not just partly on. The car may still roll if it is not.-Move the gear stick to neutral.This is the middle position that feels free when moving it from side to side the car is now considered“out of gear”.- Start the engine with the key, by turning the key to the right and when the engine revs up let the key go it will automatically spring back; during all of this remember you still got your clutch fully down.“Congratulations you have now started the car”.
Let’s get the car moving shall we
Press the clutch down fully to the floor.- Make sure the hand brake is off.- Move the gear stick to 1st gear. (The car is now in gear)- Slowly, at this stage very slowly lift foot up from the clutch until you hear the engine revs beginto drop, you can also watch the rev counter if you like that will start to drop also. And hold theclutch still. Remember, we are not moving the car at this stage, if the car has moved the clutch isout to far. We are only finding the friction point.- Clutch back in and relax- Keep doing this until you can go straight to that point fairly quickly. You may only have to do it afew times or you may have to do it a hundred times it doesn’t matter. The main thing you havemaster finding the friction point.
