That is true! I'm hoping it's a simple adjustment of that linkage.

Something not mentioned but I have experienced. Damaged snout cracked or broken the throw out bearing hub rides on can cause damage to the pilot bearing.

Well for now I adjusted the clutch pedal and so far, so good. I didn't get a lot of driving time, but it definitely shifted better Thanks to all

Are the clutch and pressure plate in good shape and the right ones?
If they are worn enought they may not allow the gearbox to shift smoothly.
