1995 Mustang 5.0 clutch pedal is very tight. Is this good?

Question: My 95 5.0 clutch pedal is very tight. Is this good?

Answer: It depends on what you mean by tight. If the clutch pedal is hard to push in and slow to come back out, or hard to depress, then the answer is no.

The 1995 Mustang, as well as all 1982 to 2003 Mustangs have a cable and quadrant setup.

Over time these parts wear. Also accumulated dirt and crud can cause sticking.

The factory quadrant is a plastic piece which is not the most robust part around. It sounds like it could be time to replace it with a new cable and quadrant.

I've also seen the bushings at the pedal wear out and cause binding, making for a hard to depress clutch pedal as well, so it's a good idea to have a look at that too.
