Fits Manual Mustangs Only
What’s up everyone, Justin from AmericanMuscle.com, here with a cure to that mushy clutch pedal, and that sticky clutch cable on your ride. I’m talking about this adjustable clutch kit for all 96-04 Mustangs. Simply put, this kit is going to make your car shift like new again by replacing and reinforcing some of the crucial components responsible for getting your car into gear properly and smoothly. The first and most obvious part of this kit is the brand new fully adjustable clutch cable which replaces your old gummed up factory cable. Now over time your clutch cable picks up all kinds of dirt and grime, making for inconsistent pedal feel. As you can see this new cable slides easily, and without any effort whatsoever, and when paired with other kit components, makes for a smooth pedal feel and full adjustability. The adjustability I’m talking about is made possible thanks to this firewall adjuster. This part makes life a whole lot easier when it comes to adjusting your clutch, thanks to the fact that you don’t have to crawl under your car anymore to do so. The new clutch cable will run through this piece mounted on your firewall and simply by turning this knob you can adjust the length of your clutch cable. Now this will also give you much more precise control over your clutch pedal engagement point to better suit your style of driving. The star of this kit without a doubt is the Billet aluminum double hook clutch quadrant. Your clutch cable runs through this little piece bearing the brunt of all those hard shifts. Now your stock quadrant is made from cheap plastic which can flex or even break causing mis-shifts especially when using heavier duty clutches and pressure plates. This Billet aluminum piece totally eliminates the cheap plastic, and is designed to hold up to even the hardest shifts. Installing this kit requires you to remove your factory clutch quadrant and cable, although it’s nothing more complicated than removing a few bolts and snaking some cables, you do have to crawl underneath your car making it somewhat of a time consuming install that should take you a couple of hours. Now we here at AmericanMuscle always recommend installing this kit especially when using aftermarket clutches. It’s a simple peace of mind that will make your life a whole lot easier, trust me. If you’re experiencing a mushy clutch pedal, mis-shifts or an overall poor shifting experience, then this clutch adjuster kit for your 96-04 Mustang will have your car shifting like new all over again.
Is the double hook quadrant required? Is the double hook quadrant required, or will this product work with the Steeda quick release clutch quadrant?
This firewall adjuster is actually required if you wanted to use the Steeda Quick Release Quadrant. You could use either of those quadrants with this firewall adjustor though. Only thing to keep in mind is if you go with the double hook quadrant, that requires an adjustable clutch cable as well.

Money well spent
I am very impressed at both the ease of the install and the ease of adjusting the clutch. Paired with the Steeda quadrant, this is a must have! I want wait to install my MGW shifter and have some fun!

Does What it Says, All You Need
Essential if using any after market clutch quadrant. After almost a month of use, still at right adjustment length. The click-lock is a simple, but nice touch. One of the very best items produced by Steeda.

I installed this item to replace the factory clutch adjuster which kept on breaking on me. This product keeps my clutch feel great and dont have to worry about it coming out of its adjustment.

Good product, no instructions though
The instructions on AM website are very generic and this came with no instructions. It took me a while to realize there was a sleeve inside of this unit, supposedly for a cable that has a smaller diameter I guess...my sleeve was stuck in there so I didn't realize it was removable (and no instructions to tell me to!) I put it in the vise to try and punch it out and it fell out with one smack...haha...oh well it fits and looks nice. A little pain to get room to put the screws into the firewall, but it works! I replaced an old UPR one which was junk; the threads on it got bound up and wouldn't turn anymore. The design on this one seems much nicer anyway.

Great product and saves you getting under the car.
I love this product because it helps me avoid getting under the car to adjust the clutch cable.

need better instructions, the instructions shown did not look like my car at all. It was a 5.0 and the space to get the pry bar is not anything like the one in the picture not that much room.

adjusting where you engage your shifts is a breeze with this firewall adjuster. cutting the old one is a little tricky. but nothing to bad. shifts are crazy smooth now..
