Default Clutch cable

I am putting a new clutch in my car. I have the exhaust off, the drive shaft out and I have dissconected the clutch cable from the transmission. My questions is where is the clutch cable attached to the pedal? The clutch is really loose and I do not see a cable attached to it. Please help.

it's right where the gas pedal is... there is a white plastic quadrant up under there that it hooks on to. i would suggest getting an upgraded quadrant while your at it. steeda makes a real nice piece.

Yeah, it's in a tough spot...be prepared for a little wrenching of the back and general contorting of your body

Stock ones are self adjusting on the quadrant. The way you can adjust them is to put them to the floor and let your foot come off of it, to allow the pedal to pop up on it's own.

To truely adust it, you'll need some aftermarket stuff

Edit: I just noticed that you have a 95 -- I don't think they have the same auto adjust style quadrant. I'll have to go check out one of the cars...
