Clutch engagement

How high off the floor should my clutch be engaging? Mine might be too high, when I release my clutch I can't use the ball of feet /heel to rotate off the clutch pedal, I have to raise my left foot up and off the pedal. Is that normal?

I would have to actually see you using the clutch. It would be even better to have someone else drive the car around the block to see exactly what is going on.

Do you still have the stock clutch cable and quadrant?

What year model car?

I actually paid attention to my feet while driving a little while ago. It is perfectly natural for your heel to leave the floorboard.

Now that I think about it; it would be awkward to leave your foot on the floor while releasing the clutch.

My car is 2003 Mustang GT. As far as I know it's stock clutch , cable and quadrant. I'm looking at getting a center force clutch and factor cable. I was told the plastic quadrant is best over billet ones.

Plastic breaks, aluminum is much stronger and better suited for a heavier clutch. In reality, at 14 years old the plastic is likely brittle.

Put your foot under the clutch pedal and lift up. If it is the stock quadrant it is self adjusting. You should hear it click as it rotates upward.

Don't force it and break things.

Thanks. Well I find it really high so I won't try to raise it any further. Wilk a fire wall adjuster help make my pedal lower or higher?
