98 manual clutch adjustment

I was wondering how to adjust the clutch cable on my 98 mustang. When i push the clutch in it doesnt grap until im almost completetly out the whole way. I think that its the cable and i read that i can pull the clutch pedle back and it will click but it never clicks. Any ideas? Thanks

Do you know the history of your clutch and cable? If they're in good condition try this, push the pedal to the floor and slip your foot off of it quickly. Do that a couple of times then pull up on the pedal and see if that helps.

My clutch is the same way. I have just left it how it is. Should I try to adjust it or can I leave it?

If your happy with where it starts engaging you can leave it.

It didnt work. I was told to get a clutch adjust cable from american muscle or somewhere and that would prob fix it. But i would like to not spend any money on it unless i have too

Sort of off topic, and I apologize.
When I push my clutch in (2000 v6) it clicks and rattles like crazy. The clutch is a few years old, but should be in good condition. Any ideas?

I did that but it still didnt work. When i push the clutch in it feels like it going back to where it was before i pull it back. Im not sure whats wrong unless the autoadjust is broke?

About 3 years old. I asked a friend, and he said it could be some sort of bearing in the clutch? I'm not a big car genius, so it's all Japanese to me without some sort of instructions. I do paint and body work. No mechanical experience required and full creative freedoms. See? Haha

Nice i like the red with black. I want to get mine completely repainted someday. Prob go red. He was probably talking bout the clutch release bearing. Autozone has them for around $30 and that could be the problem

If you want to stay stock just go to an auto parts store and buy a replacement cable they are around $35-40
