Clutch cable broke

The saga continues!!!

Just picked up my car from the tuner (3 hours away) and a mile down the road this happens.

Luckily the 200+ Miles was mostly highway and I was able to rev match.

I have found a couple videos/how-to’s on clutch cable installs. Any one here have any hints/tips/tricks from personal experience? One of my friends mentioned something in regards to the throw-out bearing and how it could be damaged if the clutch cable isn’t adjusted corrected after install? Any one have insight on this?

Thanks!

Was the clutch just replaced?
It is pretty straight forward, try to get a factory Ford cable. You can also get a quadrant and an adjuster at this time if you so choose. You'll be on your back under the dash for awhile so bring some pillows for padding and a decent light.
Not too difficult if you are a contortionist.

The clutch was replaced before I bought it. The previous owner had receipts for it.

Hahaha, thanks for the tips. I honestly think I'll just remove the seat to make it even easier.
