How does the pedal feel?
Have you tried lifting the pedal with your toes to see if the clutch cable will self adjust.
Was the quadrant replaced along with the cable?
The factory plastic quadrants are known to fail.
Also possible is that the front bearing cover and TOB tube are aluminum which get worn and stick.

Re: clutch problem

Get some help.Lift and support the car properly.
Remove the inspection cover on the bell housing.
Have someone operate the clutch so you can verify it is working and the throw out bearing is not sticking on the guide tube. If you can tell that the guide tube is aluminum, it needs to be replaced with a steel or cast iron version.


A good portion of the aftermarket clutch cables are not very well made and it may be stretching.
Maximum Motorsports sells one of the best cables you can get.
It is made exactly like the factory cables and it holds up better than anything else you can buy.


It may be that your transmission synchronizers are just worn out or that your shifting forks in the transmission are bent. Verifying or correcting would require transmission removal and tear down, so I would make sure everything else is up to snuff before going this route.
