Default Seeeking Clutch Advice

I have an'01 limited 5speed. Clutch is taking hold close to the floor,but at this time still releases well.Anyone know of a procedure to adjust this thing, while there's still some life left? Any help will be appreciated. Would adjusting it up at the pedal help? Thanx

Yes, there should be an adjuster on the back / upper part of the pedal.

The hydraulic system is most likely shot- Some PT's (If not all) had an automatic
adjuster on clutch cover, I understand there were problems with this as
an early design, but apologize I don't know details.
It may have been in a Chrysler 'TSB', you could try to search.

Some exports may have has a cable clutch, but AFAIK, all are hydraulic-
similar to the front brake hydraulic system-

Edit- The FSM does show an underdash adjustment!!!
