clutch noise.


i have a 2002 mustang with a manual tranny in it. ever since i bought it the clutch pedal has been making a vibrating noise. i took it to a shop and they put a new clutch and throughout bearing in. then a week or so after it still does it. i took it back again and they said it is normal. so i looked at it and is there anyway you can tighten that cable? cuz if it does it and i put my foot under the pedal and pull up it stops so if i could tighten the cable then i think it would be fine. i looked at it and idk if u can or not so i figured i would ask.

You can tighten the clutch cable, or replace it, they even sell adjustable ones, I haven't done it myself, but maybe the Haynes manual addresses this. I'm at work now, if you dont' have an answer by tonight I'll look in my Haynes book. My car also does this, when I lift the pedal it calms the noise, however at 120k miles I need a new clutch all together, it seems as though the shop you went to didn't want to do any free work on the clutch they already put in...

ya the shop wont do any free work they said i would have to obviously pay for it which i dont want to do since it seems pretty simple if i knew how to adjust it. If u could look it up and let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

you can NOT adjust the stock clutch cable its self adjusting
next if you could you do not want it tight anyway
it needs like a 1/2 of clutch pedal free play so that the clutch isnt slipping
if you tighten it to much the clutch could be slightly disengauged to a point where the clutch will slip a little and wear prematurely

Haynes manual has section titled 'Adjuster Mechanism' ...I wish I had a scanner... it doesn't say exactly that it's the cable you are adjusting but to disassemble the mechanism and replace any worn parts, this may help if you want to take it that far...

Mmmmm I don't think so, I just replaced my cable and the old one did not. The new steeda one I bought is adjustable, but the stock was not.

Did you push the clutch all the way down, and put your put your foot underneath the pedal and pull it up to you? It should reset itself. The plastic teeth can sometimes get worn down and it doesn't work properly anymore so that might be your problem.

If it won't move it's probly adjusted fine, If the teeth are worn out and you need a new one just get and aftermarket quadrant kit like dis one:

Steeda Clutch Adjuster Kits - '83-'04 Ford Mustang

I just put one in my car, it works great.

ok well idk it could be adjusted correctly but it just seems like the pedal shouldnt rattle and when it does rattle if i hold my foot under it it stops. so idk maybe i will try again and if not i might look into the new quadrant. ok but if it is bad on the new quadrant the one u put the link too that is only for a v8 or does it work on v6 it says v8

Dan when you put the Steeda quadrant on did it wobble? Mine came with one spacer and one washer for the front peg, but the peg closer to the firewall had none, and the quadrant has room to wobble on it...

No the pedel shouldn't rattle, I don't know why but our cars don't have a clutch return spring so the bearings tend to stay engaged or just partially engaged (your rattle) which leads to early failure. Pulling up on my pedal also helped on mine but didn't fix the problem

I beleive the quadrants are the same, someone else please correct me if I am wrong

Ya it does! I noticed that too, I don't it will/won't hurt performance at all but I thought that aspect of it was a little shotty, another spacer would have been great.

yeah steeda makes great stuff but that one thing was just weird, as you said another spacer for the other peg would have been perfect... dunno why they didn't include it.
