Do you have an after market clutch & flywheel combo? In some cases these combos require 2 new holes drilled into the cable retainer on the transmission causing the retainer to slide closer to the fire wall. Remove it and drill them about 1/2 way from the present holes to the edge. If it does not work, no damage done, just some lost time. Some after market clutch/flywheel combos require this. Change the cable while you are at it. Good luck.

Take out the nut that's closer to the firewall, and you can adjust the cable about 1/4" farther up. You don't want any tension on it, or you will wear the clutch, though. Get some tension, then back it off a couple of turns.

The cable is not to bad of a replace job. Just do the new cable. It's not fun flying down the road and doing a fast shift..... crunch... goes the gears as the cable breaks. A girlie I knew (who purchased an NX) had this happen and she drives hers like it's a baby. If the problem continues with the stock setup, someone did not grind the flywheel to proper spec. You may need to move the bracket at that point.

Yea cable swaps usualy not that bad of a deal. Never done one on a sentra but did one on my samurai. Losen the jamb nut on the holder and then slide the whole thing out... Replace. Easy usualy and looking from where the se-r's cable it its easier on these than the samruai. Hard part would be taking out the intake and possibly battery to get to everything. The sam had to snake the cable all the way around the engine to get to the control arm

By the look of the rims on your car...that could be the reason. Big heavy rims not condusive to chirping the tires, if that is what you are so conserned about. Did you break in the clutch properly? Is it adjusted properly?
