Hi, I got a new clutch for my P-11 and the car feels jerky when i release the clutch. Could this be resolved with some adjustment ?

Whether or not it is aftermarket has nothing to do with it. You can adjust pedal freeplay behind the pedal under the dash. After that, there isnt much more you can do on a P11, except maybe top off the fluid. Oh, and bleed the system.

Are you dumping the clutch? It might not even be the clutch that is causing your car to jerk/buck.

What do you mean by 'dumping the clutch'?

dumping the clutch is quickly releasing it instead of easing it out so it catches more slowly

How do you bleed off a hydraulic clutch?

I dont have the FSM for the P11 so Im not 100% I bled the clutch correctly, but here's how I changed the clutch fluid and bled it:

1. To make life easier, open the clutch fluid reservoir and suck as
much fluid as you can out of it (throw it away).

2. Top off the reservoir with brake fluid.

3. Have someone get in the car and pump the clutch several
times, then hold the clutch depressed.

4. With a bleed hose attached to the clutch fluid nipple (it's
right on top of the tranny, looks just like a brake nipple), crack
it open with a small wrench (can't remember the size -- maybe
8mm) and watch the nasty brown fluid come squirting out the
hose and into your catch can.

5. Repeat steps 2-4 until no bubbles and nothing but clear fluid
comes out of the hose.

6. Detach the hose, clean up, top off the reservoir. Done!

P.S. Yes, I said nipple (twice)
