    2013 Volvo 780 13 speed. Can the brake be adjusted? It doesnt work, so have to grind it going into gear from a stop.

    Depends. We'd have to see the clutch. Could also be broken ears on the clutch brake

    Is that dealer/repair shop or Ta/Petro shop level?

    I'd try to find an independent shop with good reviews. How long have you had this truck? Most likely it has a self adjusting clutch that is worn. It definitely came from the factory with a self adjuster

    Ooh about 6 years. I have 2 dealers and 4 shops at home, I've been using for the past 20 years or so.
    I've had a clutch or 2 replaced over the years. But I've never had a problem with the clutch brake.
     
    Big Road Skateboard Thanks this.
