Hook the cable on the case lever then route the cable to the clutch handle. Turn the adjuster lock wheel all the way to the outer end of the adjuster then turn the adjuster all the way into the lever mount. This makes the adjuster as short as possible. Line up the cut-outs in the adjuster and the lock wheel to the cut-out in the lever mount. Hook the end of the inner cable into the clutch handle. Now pull the outer casing of the cable to the end of the adjuster. If the cable end isn't long enough to slide into the end of the adjuster then put the end of the outer cable on the adjuster shaft at the lock wheel and pull the clutch lever in. Now quickly release the lever while pulling the outer cable to the end of the adjuster. Normally it will pop into place so you can set the clutch lever 1/4" end play. You may need to try it a few times until you get it.

Old clutch cable snapped, tried replacing with new one, no pressure on the cable?

The first thing that comes to mind is that the new clutch cable is not the correct length (too long). Did you compare the old one with the new one? When you pull in the clutch lever you should be able to see the clutch release lever at the transmission move. If the lever is not moving then the cable is too long or needs adjustment.

My Nissan 95 sentra clutch had crunched and pedal would not spring back, found that clutch cable had snapped, replaced this and now my clutch pedal is still not 100% springing back, it springs back en

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.

I have a peugeot boxer 1.9d van and cant remove the clutch cable from out of bulk head, pedal side as it has snapped, do you have any ideas

If the cable has completely snapped and not attached to the clutch pedal, the whole cable, casing and broken cable should just about fall out of the bulkhead. I have never had a problem with that on any vehicle.

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.

Clutch cable, 1983 ford mustang

You've installed two cables, both of which broke. You made mention of a metal part bending, is this the fork? You may need to pull the bell housing to check the operation of the fork, throw-out bearing and pressure plate. This does not sound like a cable problem.
