Clutch adjustment question

OK, so all of a sudden I notice my clutch is engaging very close to the floor when I release the pedal & there is a bit of loose play when I depress the pedal. Any idea if it is an adjustment & if so, how do I do it?

You can adjust how the pedal will move the master cilinder, not a lot but you can give or take a little bit on pedal course.

Steve is right, first thing first, bleed it and put some new dot4 fluid.

Also, note the colour of the fluid you bleed out. It should be yellowish, if it has gone black that is a sign that seals somwhere in either the master or slave (likely the slave, they get pretty hot in their location and tend to fail quite often) are degrading. If after putting in fresh fluid it goes black again in a short period of time it is a sign you may want to have a spare on hand.
