Cultch pedal slack

I was wondering how much slack is in the clutch pedal in your guys cars. Mine has about a inch and a half to two inches of play before it starts pushing the clutch in. It has a brand new clutch so that's not the problem and I know it has a auto tensioner cable on it. Is there anyway I can make it have less slack before it starts to engage the clutch. Thanks

Re: Cultch pedal slack

Have you tried to adjust it, if it's like my car you just out your foot underneath the clutch pedal and pull it up towards the dash and it should click or something. Just depress the clutch after that and it's adjusted.

Yea I pulled it up as far as it would go then pressed it back down but it dosnt pop or get tighter. Does your pedal have much room before it starts to engage the clutch? I think my best rout might be a adjustable cable and quadrant.

Re: Cultch pedal slack

I bought a zoom cable and quadrant and a BBK firewall adjuster, before that I only had like maybe an inch of play of that, now I have none in the pedal.

That's prolly what I'm gonna do. Where did you order yours? I got my clutch from summit. I guess I'll look into AM tho for that stuff cause they prolly got it cheapest.

The adjuster I got from summit and the cable/quadrant they had at advanced auto parts in stock. I didn't have time to wait I needed the cable because mine broke almost completely in half so I had to replace right away.

Re: Cultch pedal slack

I dont mind the slack as much as just how deep my clutch is. I learned on a car with a very short clutch and my mustang's can annoy the crap out of me

Re: Cultch pedal slack

to tighten your clutch up you need to press your clutch in first, then while still holding the clutch pedal down grab and hold the quadrant (right above the gas pedal), then pull up on the pedal. you'll hear it click then. I use 2 clicks on mine. if you go too far, let go of the pedal and quadrant and then pull up on the pedal again not holding the quadrant this time to let the tension off, then repeat as desired.

It worked very well. But I think my cable is way stretched cause it's Macedonia out and still has slack. It's never been replaced I don't think so I'm gonna go ahead and at least replace it with a factory one. That's a great tip tho man. Thanks for the help.

I'm pretty sure in a 07 it has a hydraulic clutch. I don't think there's anyway to adjust it except for bleeding some air out of the lines.

Well I'm glad it worked for you, and it's not a fix all, i still have my original clutch cable, but i have a spare cable and quadrant just in case it breaks.
