Question about Nissan Sentra
It would help to know which Nissan this is, however replacing the cable is pretty much the same for most models.
At the gearbox end of the cable is an adjuster on the cable which needs to be loosened as much as is needed to free the cable from the actuating lever. Before adjustment can be made the locknut should be loosened first.(See 2nd diagram)
Under the dash at the top of the clutch pedal the cable should unhook upwards from the pedal. If it uses a clevis pin this is fastened by a circlip that can be pulled using long nose pliers or with the aid of a small screwdriver. The diagram below shows (1) split pin and (2)circlip removal at the clevis pin.
After removal of the circlip/splitpin the clevis pin can be pushed out to free the cable.
On reassembly push the end of the cable through the firewall from the engine bay side. Hook it over the pedal and have an assistant pull on the inner cable while pushing towards the firewall on the outer cable to make sure it is properly seated at the grommet on the firewall and at the pedal. If a clevis pin was used you'll need to insert the pin and its circlip and then push at the firewall to ensure the cable is properly seated in the grommet at the firewall.
See diagram below:
Refit the cable at the clutch lever(3) on the gearbox side and readjust using the adjuster(2) to allow 1/2" to 3/4" free play on the Pedal as shown. Tighten the locknut(1)
