Clutch proplems! A very gripping problem

EA falcon 5sp CFI 12/1989

My problem is the clutch engages and disengages at the very top of the pedal and the slightest touch makes it off friction and winding each gear out it seem to take 1 second or .5 of a second to get friction when I let the clutch completely out.

I’m think the clutch is still ok it’s just slowly moved too far up the pedal, is their any way to adjust it my self? Even though I don’t know too much about mechanics. What are your thoughts.

Any help would be great Thanks

There's a simple adjustment for it under the bonnet against the firewall.

its a nut against the firewall on the engine bay side.. do you know which cable is the clutch cable... just follow that cable to where it goes through the firewall on the drivers side of course. and where it goes through the firewall there is a nut you turn to adjust it.
