Clutch Pedal problem.

Every time I push my Clutch pedal in it holds for a second then sounds like something snaps and it goes to the floor. then when i lift the pedal to adjust its fine until i put pressure on the pedal again. is it the clutch quadrant? if so do i need to buy a quick release quadrant or double hook? any help will be greatly appreciated. been without my car for 2weeks.

Either your clutch went out or something is up with the cable

Any updates on this? Mine does the same thing but i'm betting on the adjuster being the cause.

It was the adjuster not the quadrant itself.

Honestly I would go with a adjustable clutch cable. From people I've asked the firewall adjusters break faster. I had to replace mine yesterday. I got angry a few times because you literally have no space to work with but all you do is pry them off don't lose the cotter clips you will need them. To get the adjuster off you have to push the pedal in you will see why if you have any questions feel free to ask.

I don't think we're on the same page. I'm talking about a steeda aluminum quadrant and aluminum firewall adjuster. There is nothing to break aside the cable. The adjuster is two aluminum pieces that screw into one another with a set screw, the quadrant is a solid aluminum piece that replaces the factory plastic-toothed adjuster. They work flawlessly on my 04.. There's no way going from plastic teeth to billet aluminum is a downgrade in durability.

We are on the same page. I have the steeda quick release quadrant. I just think that the adjustable cable would work better that's just my opinion. I have never used a firewall adjuster that's why I say that. But have you already took the plastic quad and adjuster out? That thing is a real cheap I don't know why ford would decide to pick that.

Oh and what I was talking about me replacing was the quadrant not the adjuster I see where what I was trying to say got mixed up

Is your car a 4cyl? I need to use my stock cable because the aftermarket adjustables connect the same way as 5.0 cars, Not with the "dogbone" setup 2.3s use. I'm just concerned that my stock cable will be too short/long when attached to the Steeda quad. I'll be taking a shot at it this week since I want to replace my carpet anyways. I work for a vendor of Steeda parts so I'll grab a FW adjuster just in case since they're a good enough bargain.

Approx. How much longer was your stock cable than what you need? You do know the adjustable cables connect differently, right?

For the record, fox body quadrants are ridiculous. Changing my 04's was a breeze. My '89 is torture.
