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


Hi, procedure from autozone.com 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.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  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.

I need to adjust my clutch



Pre 1997/9 models of Fords were self-adjusting via the clutch-foot-pedal. The pedal engages a ratchet system called the QUADRANT & PAWL and is part of the pedal. The mechanism is very similar on older Ford models of: Escort, Fiesta, Sierra, Granada, Transit & others. Newer vehicles may have a Hydraulic Clutch from 1997/9 onwards, and these work differently from the cable & pully mechanism. Clutch-fluid can be bled to improve the ability to operate the clutch, however this is not necessarily a method of adjusting the clutch.

If your reading this article because you have a broken clutch-pedal then please read on.

If when pressing the foot-pedal it feels like cable is broken, or pedal is loose, ...This is symptomatic of failure of the QUADRANT & PAWL 'ratchet' mechanism due to wear of teeth on the ratchet.

In some cases the pedal fails to pull the clutch out far enough to change gear, and may make a 'springing noise'. This is due to slippage on some worn ratchet-teeth, but the mechanism has not reached full failure.
There are 2 ways to remedy the fault.

1. Change the Quadrant & Pawl, using only genuine Ford parts. #Beware of inferior mouldings that are not up to standard e.g. too soft, and do not trust 'pattern-parts' on ebay etc.

2. SHORTEN THE CABLE.
  • Disconnect the FOOT-PEDAL-SPRING to release the slack normally taken up by the 'Quadrant & Pawl' (ratchet) which is faulty.
  • Remove end of nipple from clutch-cable (engine-end).
  • Fill slack with bolts & washers or other filler.
  • Drill hole in LARGE nut & bolt (like split pin but inverted).
  • FIT NUT & BOLT TO REMAINING PART OF CLUTCH-CABLE NIPPLE.

ONLY CUT VERY END OF CABLE-NIPPLE LEAVING AS MUCH CRIMP AS POSSIBLE, ...then clamp the nut & bolt over the crimp. This is less likely to slip or even cut cable.

Clutch-cable should be able to be re-fitted without tools or tensioning the clutch-arm. Final tension of cable should leave CLUTCH ARM & CABLE SLIGHTLY LOOSE.

NOTE : Overadjustment of clutch can cause damage. Therfore only remove a minimum of slack from the cable.

I need to adjust my clutch but it seems like the adjuster by the pedel wont stay clicked in the spot i want it in


Unfortunately the plastic stock adjuster doesn’t allow for precisely adjusting the clutch cable.
You can purchase an aftermarket adjuster that mounts on the fire wall that enables you to adjust the clutch cable to any position you choose. It also eliminates the rubber grommet on the clutch cable that gives the cable a firmer feel, which improves shifting dramatically.
Steeda, UPR, BBK & Ford Racing all offer one.
Another improvement is to change the plastic adjustable quadrant to an aluminum quadrant eliminating any deflection during hard shifting.

Hope this helps.

1987 gmc s15 2.8 litre. Clutch only goes half way


I don't know that specific vehicle, but if its a hydraulic clutch it sounds like either you have a leak and your clutch fluid is low, or the master or slave cylinder could be bypassing internally. Check the fluid level in your clutch master cylinder. If its low, you should top it off with brake fluid and will probably have to bleed the system. Also look for leaks. You can probably find info or a video online of how to bleed the system. Its a bit hard to explain without illustrations or pictures. Not really very difficult to perform. Good luck.
