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)

How to remove clutch master cylinder

Removing a brake or clutch master cylinder is a fairly intuitive process and the only real problem is squirming under the dashboard to extract the pushrod clevis pin from the clutch pedal and then put it back again when fitting the new unit.

Other than the pushrod on most models everything else is under the bonnet - the fluid pipe and usually two retaining nuts or bolts. Sometimes there isn't much access but in the case of difficulty the use of a mirror and a good light will allow inspection so using suitable wrenches it will be possible to work solely by touch if necessary.

How to remove cluctch cable 1987 subaru legacy gl

I can't say I know the answer, but the service manual for this unit should tell you. The only place you will probably find one is at your local library. They have subscriptions to most online service manuals, they are free but only accessible at the branch, a call to your local branch should get you access to the one you need. If its not close enough, try a Subaru owners forum online they may have the answer as well.

it sounds like to me the cable may have broke or came unhooked. i'm not sure with your car if you have one cable or two seperate cables going to trunk and the fuel tank. what you may be able to do, is take the cover off of the release and look at the cable if it is broke or unhooked you can take the piece of cable that is sticking out and use a pair of needle nose pliers and pull on the cable manually and it may release it.

    1. Detach the cables from the cable guides and remove the cables from the vehicle.
    2. To install:
    1. Fit the cable loosely into place. Begin reattachment at the rear brake shoes or calipers. Make certain the cable is routed correctly and firmly seated in it mounts.
    2. Connect the cable(s) at the lever inside the car.
    3. Install the cable bracket retaining bolts. Do not allow the cable to become kinked or bent. Make certain the rubber boots are in place where the cables pass into the cabin.
    4. Adjust the cables.
    5. Lower the vehicle to the ground and check for proper brake operation.
    6. If equipped, enable the SRS system and connect the negative battery cable.

Use a box-end wrench to depress the retaining tangs, then slide the cable out of the backing plate

2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-V clutch sticking and hard shifting

I am dealing with a very similar issue on my 03 Spec V , So far i noticed the clevis pin was loose and the locking hitch pin that slips thru it had fallen out . this caused the gears to not wanna engage due to the bolt behind the clevis which runs to the master cylinder was not getting pressed in when i pushed the clutch pedal in because the clevis pin was slippin on n off giving me no pressure up top .. I had to remove my lower dash panel in order to get visual n hand access to this pin , it is a tight spot to work in as well . May be easist to remove the 4 14mm bolts that hold yur driver seat in to give ya more room to work n stretch out ur arms

How to relace clutch cable on 1995 saab se 900 turboon saab 900se

1. Remove the battery.
2. Remove the clutch cable end from the clutch arm end at the wire stop.
3. Slide out the rubber doughnut from the gearbox housing which holds the clutch cable
4. Move the distribution box nut and the alarm pin attached to it (some modules)
5. Disconnect the clutch cable holder from the fender and the data link holder.
6. Remove the drivers lower panel below the steering wheel and remove the air duct as well as the knee shield.
7. Slide out the fuse box holder and ICE Box (should be a black box with many wires going to it). You can remove the instrument cluster at this point but you can also do this without removing the cluster with a little patience
8. Move the pedal spring to one side and remove the eye catch for the cable.
9. Remove the clutch cable by pulling it out from the engine compartment
10. Reinstall in the reverse. Saab actually came out with a bulletin which Needed one to install two washers at the back of the new cable instead of one. The factory cable comes with one but you can remove the 2nd washer off the old cable and install it on the new cable so two exist. This helps take up excessive pedal slack.

Separate the release lever by removing the snap pin and clevis pin.
Separate the release lever from the fork shaft.
Loosen the bolts attached to the release cylinder and separate the release cylinder from the transaxle assembly (no need to open the clutch hydraulic system).
  • Remove the transaxle assembly after removing each bolt attached to the engine assembly.
  • Remove the clutch cover assembly. The release bearing is still attached.
To separate the release bearing from the clutch cover, rotate the release bearing to gain access to the bearing snap ring.
