Are you converting from auto to manual?
Is there a return spring on clutch pedal? That should stop pedal going forward.
Here's a tip if you're working on an XF. The firewall is too weak for the clutch cable and it will flex and probably pull a section of firewall through in time. Mine went at under ?150,000. If it's a weld job it's expensive and it can easily be avoided. Get a clutch cable spigot from an XD/XE ($1 from Pick a Part if they charge you at all) and fix to the firewall the same as it's fixed to XD/XE. You could strengthen the area with a steel plate first if you want belt and braces security.
