ddb.. What is a keeper clip ??
iirc the clutch cable comes with adjuster compressed and a clip holding it "closed", this clip needs to be removed after cable is fitted to release the adjuster.
Or perhaps I'm getting mixed up with another car. I'm moving house and all my manuals are packed and buried.

Oh right, thanks for that. There isn't a clip on the cable that I can see, the cable moves freely.. Why would the bite point be on the floor ??

The auto adjuster is in a box arrangement in the approx. middle of the cable (at least on earlier models than yours ) . It sits under the engine on the subframe. It is a part of the cable and when fitting, the cable is put into place then the clip holding the two ends of the cable spring out and take up any slack in the outer cable. It doesn't adjust the inner cable only the outer cable.
If at the gearbox or pedal end of the cable there is a lot of slack in the outer cable, the auto adjuster may not have been fitted correctly.
If it has been fitted correctly then other faults may be causing your probs. ie Wrong cable , pedal bushes, clutch lever bushes or the rubber spacer washer missing.
