Clutch Cable/Adjustment

To all you DIYers:

For those of you who are putting off your clutch cable replacement, don't. This has been one of the "most improved" items I've done to the P-car. I can't attribute all the improvement to the cable, but definetly the adjustment at the end. I also, replaced the spring at the pedel. Again, huge improvment not quite as easy as the Subaru to depress but much, much better!

Kris

Kris,

Anything to watch out for when replacing the cable? It is one of my winter projects along with new bushings in the pedal cluster and springs on both ends.

The one tricky part is getting the old cable out of the sleeve at the firewall. The cable has a fitting at that point with two notchs in it, I think an open end 14mm will fit over the end. Turn it a little to break it free then you can work it off. It's the female part of the fitting and probably slides on an inch so just keep working. Also, it is easier to release the cable at the gearbox end first so the pedel will fall to the floor to reveal the cleavis pin under the center tunnel. Otherwise not too bad, good luck!

Thanks for the advice. Won't be doing any work on car until after the Holidays and may even wait until alittle closer to when I will be able to drive (weather) again.
