No, you can change it in the car. Look up between the brake an gas pedals and you see the parts you need to remove. It's kind of tight up there but, it's a lot easier then removing the whole pedal assembly.

How do you change a clutch cable in a 1989 mustang 5.0l 5 speed

Hi, procedure from pasted below. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

CAUTION The clutch driven disc often contains asbestos, which has been determined to be a cancer-causing agent Never clean clutch surfaces with compressed air. Avoid inhaling any dust from any clutch surface. When cleaning clutch surfaces, use a commercially-available brake cleaning fluid.

  1. Lift the clutch pedal to its upward-most position to disengage the pawl and quadrant. Push the quadrant forward, unhook the cable from the quadrant and allow it to slowly swing rearward.
  2. Open the hood and remove the screw that holds the cable assembly isolator to the dash panel.
  3. Pull the cable through the dash panel and into the engine compartment. On 5.0L engines, remove the cable bracket screw from the fender apron.
  4. Raise and support the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  5. Remove the dust cover from the bell housing.
  6. Remove the clip retainer holding the cable assembly to the bell housing.
  7. Slide the ball on the end of the cable assembly through the hole in the clutch release lever and remove the cable.
  8. Remove the dash panel isolator from the cable.

To install:
  1. Install the dash panel isolator on the cable assembly.
  2. Insert the cable through the hole in the bell housing and through the hole in the clutch release lever. Slide the ball on the end of the cable assembly away from the hole in the clutch release lever.
  3. Install the clip retainer that holds the cable assembly to the bell housing.
  4. Install the dust shield on the bell housing.
  5. Push the cable assembly into the engine compartment and lower the vehicle. On 5.0L engines, install the cable bracket screw in the fender apron.
  6. Push the cable assembly into the hole in the dash panel and secure the isolator with a screw.
  7. Install the cable assembly by lifting the clutch pedal to disengage the pawl and quadrant. Then, pushing the quadrant forward, hook the end of the cable over the rear of the quadrant.
  8. Depress the clutch cable several times to adjust the cable.

My transmission makes noise until I depress my clutch

sounds like the main shaft bearings within the gearbox itself. i would of said the release bearing but u already changed it. the main shaft doesnt spin with the clutch pedal pressed. check for oil leaks and check the oil level in the gearbox.

Clutch pedal linkage

This shaft is removable, and the assembly, if not worn extremely bad, can be rebuilt. The assembly is called a quadrant. You can go to the local FORD dealer, and tell them to pull up a picture of the quadrant assembly, and you can pick out the parts you need to make the repair. If the shaft has worn out the quadrant bracket, then you will have to replace the assembly.
