So i think i broke my quadrant tonight. i have a spec stage 3 clutch so its pretty stiff. But when i push the pedal in it just makes a loud pop and goes in all the way, and when i release it makes a clicking like the gears are just sliding along the other peice down there. So is my stock quadrant fried?

Its not hard at all to change and no you dont have to pull the dash. Do not replace it with stock though, get an aftermarket quadrant and firewall adjuster

do your self a favor and pull out your seat. the cotter pins are a little bit of a pain, but their is a spring tha holds the small part of the clutch quadrant on that can be a pain

I see. So when i put the new cable in ill just pull the old one, pull of the quadrant, put the new quad in(which i hope pins right where the stock one goes) and put the cable over the new quad? and the the firewall adjuster and all that too i assume

correct, but if you are going with a firewall adjuster, I would just run a stock cable. they are bigger than aftermarket ones and you will have less of a hassle getting everything adjusted

I see, well ill just do that then. So with that i would be able to adjust where the clutch engages on the pedal release?

This article will have a lot of the answers you are looking for: Clutch

I would strongly recommend taking out the seat if you're a larger individual, it'll make life quite a bit easier. Just 4 bolts and the seat belt harness.
