pulling back on clutch pedal for adjustment

Supposedly pulling back on the clutch pedal all the way until it clicks self adjusts the clutch engagement. Ive tried this a ton of times and pulling back on my clutch pedal does nothing. When my clutch pedal is in its resting position, thats as high as it goes. It doesnt pull out any farther or make any clicks at all. Anybody tried this with any success? Wondering if something is wrong with mine.

did you buy your car new? someone may have already put a new clutch cable quadrant in there. google clutch cable quadrant for mustang and look directly above your GAS pedal to see if you have one installed. mine is an after market one so i can't help you with adjusting a stock one. search around. there are a bunch of posts concerning this.

Stock adjuster sucks. Buy an aftermarket quadrant.

so the clutch doesnt burn up when you have the clutch pedal pressed. most new cars have hydralic (not sure on spelling) clutches that will adjust everything for you

I've done this in my car, but i didnt notice a difference. It does "click" though when I pull the pedal back.
