is this a consistent click? meaning does it happen every time you push down the clutch?
yes.
does it sound like your clutch cable is breaking? Or is it more subtle and more natural sounding?
it doesnt sound natural ill put it like that... i cant really explain what it sounds like but it feels like the the clutch isnt engaging right and its being forced into place...

Exclamation New edge clutch adjustment

Hey there guys I am new to the forum and want some advice. I have recently had the opportunity to look at a car. Being my first car I immediately wanted a mustang. So I bought one. She's in amazing shape but just has a couple of flaws.

The biggest one is the clutch/cable. I have done several tests and have found that the clutch is still good but it seems like the clutch may not be engaging fully especially in the higher gears. Is it possible to adjust the factory clutch without adding any new parts? Thanks so much for all your help.

The way I have heard to adjust the factory clutch without the adjuster kit is to make sure the car is off, put it in first gear, pull up on the clutch pedal until it clicks, press to the floor and do this process several times.

Yeah, but if your quadrant is losing its adjustment, it's probably worn out. This is the solution:
