The housing is routed. The cable could be broken inside. See if both ends move in tandem.

if you take the cable off, you can move the arm on the 'engine side' by hand and feel the engagement point. if you can't, then something has popped out. take the clutch cover off.

yeah but there's always tension on that spring, even if you have the cover off. if you pull on the arm, you should hit a spot where you can't pull it by hand anymore (this is the end of clutch freeplay)

Where did you get the new cable from? Maybe it's the wrong one.
