Actually this can be done. It needs a little tweaking of the many .ini / .txt files that can be editted.

There is a special test program just for the clutch bitpoint. It's called "S_SMG2K.IPO".

You need to edit either the E46 menu file or the Gearbox menu file, or both.

In the E46.ENG file (edit with text editor) add:

"ENTRY= S_SMG2K,Sequential M-Gearbox - Clutch bite point init."

(the text after the comma is how it will show up in the menu)

Now launch INPA go to E46, transmission and run the test. Follow the on-screen instructions.

I found this out for my SMG1 car. I looked through the INPA olders an noticed additional SMG*ipo files. When I added this to my INPA menu, holy SMG Batman. I found a testprogram that can do the adaption of every single component individually.

One note though: some tests on mine don't work. It doesn't mess anything up, it just stops with an error. These tests are likely to be not in the menu for a reason. But for me, most work fine.

Since INPA is just so much faster and if I only want to do a quick reset of the clutch bitepoint, it's done with INPA in no time.

p.s. also do regular bleeding of the system. The problem is heat. The Pentosin will 'gas out' and create bubbles. Bubbles can me compressed and will make the system perform less and more slippage on the clutch. Specially during hot summer days.

I always do a double debleed procedure in DIS, then reset clutch bite point in INPA.
After that, the change is very noticable.

Is there any risks when doing this procedure?
Only have a bit of clutch judder every now and again.
Is it worth the risk, if any.

No. In worst case the test fails and that's it. Nothing will have changed.

Then fall back to DIS again.

Be careful you don't do full adaptions in inpa.. 90% of the time it will fail and the cog light can't be put out as a result until it passes inpa full.adaptions.. Which are very sensitive.

If that happens, you can use INPA to reset any fault. And/or hookup DIS.

But clutch point only takes a few seconds. I doubt INPA would fail that test.

Reseting in inpa doesn't clear the cog light.. Only passing full adaptions will as far as im aware. Ive done clutch bite point etc wuth cog light on and it stays on..
