Default HELP! CLUTCH ISSUES!

being a auto guy all my life, im new to T5s, i just got my car back today from paint, and driving it home i couldnt even shift it, my king cobra clutch is super stiff, and every 2 months or so i have to put a clutch cable in it because i either A) break it, or B) stretch it out to the point where it wont disengage the clutch when i press it all the way down. I just got a steeda cable, quadrant, and firewall adjuster, and i wanted to know if adjusting this will help out until i can get a diffrent clutch and pressure plate set up.

Something is deff not right in your setup, Get the quadrant and the firewall adjuster and your clutch should work normal. I have a King Cobra in my notch with adjustable quadrant and cable and it is actually not that hard to press in compared to my stock 82. Maybe your Original quadrant is screwed up and streching out your cable?
