Default Manual transmission not fully disengaging....

Hello Guys/Gals,
I am a new member, and just replaced my shifter bushings on my 2006 standard PT. The job was easy and took about 20 minutes . . . after the 30 minutes trying to figure out how to get the console out! The cruiser shifts more solidly, and smoothly.
The problem I have is that my transmission does not seem to be disengaging fully. When I have the clutch pedal fully depressed, the car begins to roll slightly. Is there a clutch adjustment on the cruiser? If there is, how does one do it?
Lastly, I cannot find a Haynes/Chilton manual for a 2006 Cruiser. Does it exist? Everybody tries to sell me an online service manual, but It does me no good if I have to sit at the computer to reference something, not under the car.
I thank you guys in advance!

I'd start by checking your fluid levels first off-- although if the car was fine before, it should still be fine, but you never know.

Secondly, the clutch pedal is adjustable-- there should be an 8mm nut located near where the pedal attaches to the linkage to the master cylinder. You just loosen it, move the pedal, and tighten it.

The Haynes manuals only go to 2003 or 2004. That pretty much covers everything for all years. Turbos may or may not be covered. I don't have one so I can't verify the coverage.

I hear ya. It's hot out there. My girlfriend's Camry started acting up again this morning (Surprise!) so she's got the PT, but I've been outside troubleshooting it all afternoon, and I'm drenched! Says its 94, but feels like 102 outside!

I actually just bought a Haynes manual myself on eBay. It's for 01-09, but it was printed in 03.. It's come in handy already.
