Adjust clutch pedal height

I have the same issue, actually. I feel like clutch pedal should be sitting higher than brake/gas for comfortable operation. If I adjust the seat for the clutch, the right leg feels cramped. If I adjust for brake/accelerator, left leg is overstretched and is fighting the front edge of the seat.

It appears the clutch lever is made of plastic, and there's no way to get the pedal off without cutting it.

So folks I'm short. I need to bring the pedal up so I'm not sitting like grandma in the steering wheel. I want to avoid a block on the pedal anyone know of a kit or way to adjust the pedal?
To be honest the best way is a pedal spacer. My dad goes thought the same thing in his C5 Corvette 6 speed. Added blocks to the clutch that looks like the stock pedal.

I have fooled quite a bit with the pedal box in my Fiesta for different reasons. The clutch is the least modification friendly since it is some sort of composite and is probably the most complex.

I think you could make some sort of spacer pad that does not look hack. IMHO to make a new pedal arm that would work would take quite a bit of skill and time.

you could 3d print one that fit and send it out for metal fabrication if you really wanted to.

I have been thinking on this.
Is there any idea on an ideal rise of the pedal?
I was thinking that 2 inches should be correct.

ok I was looking at 3d-printable pedal spacers on thingiverse- I haven't taken a look that closely at my clutch pedal - if the pedal-pad is removable from the arm you might be able to make a spacer under that pedal.
My understanding is the Clutch and Gas pedal are very similar in design. There are a few nice 3D printed gas pedal spacers out there that fit between the firewall and pedal assembly base plate. I'm sure someone could print one for you. The trick would be spacing out the brake pedal to match.

The problem I see with that is that you would be relocating the break pedal and I don't think that is necessary.
Also that would require changing the master cylinder actuating rod and other things along with adjustments.
To move just the clutch would relocate the pivot point, pedal stop, and the clutch switch.
This all would not be a very user friendly install.
