Non e-gas throttle cable adjustment??

Hi folks,

Does anybody know how you adjust the throttle cable on a 986 non e-gas boxster? There is quite a lot of slack in mine, but was surprised to not see an adjuster on the throttle body.

Thanks, Andrew.

The adjuster is on the bottomside of the car. I have a photo of this in my engine drop article found here: Pelican Technical Article: Boxster Engine Drop / Removal - 986 / 987

On the 1999 and earlier cars, the throttle was controlled by an actual cable. Remove the outer cover by releasing the tabs (purple arrow) and rotating the cover downwards. Then release the throttle cable that is connected to the main body of the car (green arrow). Finally, remove the two nuts that hold the cover to the chassis (yellow arrow) and disconnect the housing from the body. The housing remains with the engine when you lower it.

Hi Wayne, thank you for the response, i'd hunted my 101 to see if you'd already covered it. Do you happen to know how is the actually adjustment done?

Thanks, Andrew.
