2000 Mustang V6 clutch adjustment

Hey everyone. I just picked up a 2000 Mustang, 3.8L 5 speed. It has a new clutch with only a few hundred miles on it, but the pedal lets out real high. I've read a few threads, but I'm still unsure how to adjust it without buying a quadrant and firewall adjuster. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I'm trying to avoid putting parts into this car since I probably won't be keeping it long. I saw a thread where I'm pretty sure it described taking the quadrant off and moving it a tooth. Does this make sense or would that be the same as pulling the pedal up?
I took a look at the quadrant and the pedal was already adjusted all the way up. The cable looked a little "loose" in the quadrant. So I pulled off the inspection cover and sure enough the cable is stretched. Looks much easier to change on this then it was on my 87, though.
