if you're still using the stock cable...SOL. if you have an aftermarket cable the adjustment is made at the clutch fork end of the cable, just loosen the nut(s) and retighten them further back on the cable.

IF the auto adjust still works, pull the pedal all the way up, then push down and see what happens. if it still works it should make a ratcheting sound

i would suggest gettin a upr adjustable cable and new quadurant. Cause one day the stock one will leave you stranded. It happend to me. And if you ever plan on getting a heavy duty clutch you need a heavier duty cable and quadurant anyways.

My problem is almmost similar. The clutch has been replaced about 5000 miles. Now it is very hard to put it in 1st gear unless the pedal down deep to the floor. What could happenning? I have an 87 LX 5.0
