88 gt

Clutch won't disengage, doesn't matter if the clutch pedal is pushed in or not. Transmission won't shift in any gear when car is running.

If the cable isnt broken, it sounds like the throw out bearing to me. Did it make a whining noise from the transmission area before it went out?

It makes a grinding noise when I try to put it in gear but won't go. The clutch pedal does make a noise when I push it. I just changed the clutch and bearings out about 5,6 months ago

+1, or maybe you need to adjust the cable.

I had to replace the clutch, I also put in a new cable and quad at the same time. In the end, pieces of the clutch got wedged between the pressure plate and clutch, which caused the clutch to not disengage.
