you need the Steeda / UPR clutch adjuster kit- then you can adjust it on the quadrant, firewall, or cable itself.

so if i took it to a shop they would put this clutch adjuster kit on my car then adjust the clutch then take it off? seems like a lot of work just to adjust a freaking clutch.

Ford quadrants are made of nylon and are self adjusting; pull up firmly on the clutch pedal until you hear a *click.*

You may get more than one click out of it.

But eventually, you'll want to get rid of that crappy nylon quadrant and go for a clutch adjuster kit from Steeda.

WHere is the clicking noise coming from? the pedal? the trans?
As for replacing your factory quadrant, whats the point? They work just fine, Ive had 10 stangs and I have yet to put an aftermarket quadrant in. People that say theyre junk = noobs.
