soft clutch, clicking when let off clutch, won't go into gear

by not going into gear i mean it will not move more than an inch

I looked at the online repair manual and the black and white computer sketches were not enough for me to locate anything...

<3

there is seriously one video on youtube about a clutch for this vehicle, its 30 seconds long and it shows the clutch pedal.

Can you shift into gear when engine is off? Your clutch cable maybe broken or if its fluid, out of fluid or it leaked out. The shifter uses linkage too to move the gear selector. Im betting its the clutch release where the problem lies as why you cant shift with engine on.

shifter is fine, the clutch is soft so i think it needs the air bleed out

I had an old mercedes 240d with a hydro clutch. You had to use a short piece of hose and run it from the brake bleeder screw on the drivers front to the slave cylinder and reverse bleed it from the brakes to get the air out of the clutch.

Not much of a clutch connector.

The air doesn't just 'get in there'; that is evidence of a clutch master or slave failure. Or low fluid level (owner incompetence).

The shifter is not SUPPOSED to go into gear unless the clutch is releasing cleanly, it can't with air in it as the movement is not far enough due to the air compressing.

Hydraulics to clutch are dead, the clutch not working then cause gears to grind since the clutch is nor releasing to unload trans gears. Normal when a clutch quits working unless owner flogs it long enough to then tear up trans synchros.

Fix the hydraulic issue (pedal soft).

You're asking same question more than once and jawing it to death, that won't fix it.
