Clutch biting point

Chaps and Chapesses - the clutch on my 01 V6 Spider seems to have a very high biting point; it seems that is is near the top of the pedal travel. Considering the car has only done 19k miles, I can't believe that the clutch is on its' way out. Are here any other reasons that this should be happening? It just seems to be more noticable than before. Is the pedal/clutch auto-adjust, or is there a manual adjust? I have topped up the brake fluid (think the clutch uses it too?) which was a little low, but all that did was allow my car to stop.
Any advice appreciated! Thanks.

Re: Clutch biting point

The pedal might just need adjusting I guess...

Re: Clutch biting point

Clutch wear depends partly on the driver. Your problem would suggest that the clutch cover springs are pushing the pedal up further because of clutch plate wear. Do you replace the clutch before the flywheel gets damaged? Or the clutch cover plate might have been a bit weak, or have got very hot some time.
