O.K. I put in a new clutch cable in perfect timing and everything ran smoothly, UNTIL... the clutch pedal started moving side to side. the spring popped out and this white plastic sleeve that helps connect it to the brake pedal cracked. the part # some internet parts place gave me was 2GR0Y6JJV BUT I have not been able to SEE the picture of this part for confirmation. How do I fix it? I couldn't even find it in the repair manual.
The white plastic sleeve is an integral part of the clutch cable assy. You can get a cable at Autozone for about 12.00 plus tax. Replacement is easy, and the hardest thing involved is readjusting the free play in the cable after installation!

What do you mean when you say you fixed the cable. It sounds like the cable broke and you replaced it. Is that correct. If so, did you adjust the free play in the clutch pedal to the manufacturers specification. If you have not done this correctly the clutch will either not disengage, or no engage properly. From your description it appears as though there is n free play and hence the clutch is staying disengaged even when you release the clutch pedal. If this is the case, then try lengthening the cable until the clutch pedal moves with say 25 mm of free movement before anything happens, and try again.
Either the clutch needs replacing or the cable needs adjusting.
First thing is to try and adjust it if possible.
Get someone to press and release the clutch pedal while you are looking in the engine compartment and see if you can locate the actuation mechanism. You should see the clutch lever being moved back and forth. Once located and you see which way everything moves, get the person to stop pressing the pedal. On the cable that moves the lever should be 2 nuts (one of which is a locking nut that prevents the the one nearest the lever from moving). Loose of the locking nut off and start tightening the other one up. The person in the car may see the pedal start rising up. Tighten up and try the clutch again. Keep adjusting until it feels okay whilst driving. Finally tighten the lock nut down to the adjusting nut to prevent it from loosening off over time. If there is not enough adjustment possible it may require a new cable.
Check the spring to see if it has snapped anywhere within it's coil.
Remove the cable and check operation of the pedal and spring mechanism. If all is well, then with a lever, check that the clutch release arm on the gearbox is operational. If that is also sticking, then you will have to remove the gearbox to investigate further. If not sticking, then also remove the clutch cable outer sleeve, and replace.
once you have bled out all the air ,if the pedal still engages right down then suspect the fingers on the release plate are worn.Never replace a part of the clutch, allways change all 3 components,it save all the hastle of taking it to bits again and again.
