HELP : T5 clutch cable

This isn't for my car, for a mates :-D (happy it's not mine for once)

Something to do with a clip or something on the top of the pedal broke and freed the cable from both ends. Anyway, we fixed it all up and took it for a little drive and it seems that the clutch isn't coming all the way out, like the cable is too short or something. This is keep the clutch like engaged all the time.

Anyone have any idea what this could be?

Actually, I know how to adjust it. That little bolty thing that comes out of the firewall, been there done that! No go :(

I'm guessing it's something at the ends.

Re: HELP : T5 clutch cable

Theres no adjustment at the ends, on the clutch end there is just a steel ball which sits in the throwout lever and on the other end theres just the clip which goes over the pin on the clutch. So if I understand correctly the clutc wont disengage as in cant put chutch in to change gear? Or its slipping madly?

This is Doug's car btw, sitting at my place right now. Want to buy some 18" Boyd Coddington wheels? :D

It goes in to the gears, but the clutch is still engaged so you can imagine the rest. It drives and stuff, just slow and burning up the clutch.

Re: HELP : T5 clutch cable

Actually for the clutch to be slipping, if it was the cable thats the prob, to cause the slipping it would be too short. In that case, wind the 'bolty thing' out so the threaded part is taken in more. Oppisite to what we did on yours :s3
