Accelerator cable replacement/ refurbish

I am looking for a exploded view of the center tunnel that houses all the cables "Clutch, throttle ETC".

Accelerator cable replacement/ refurbish, I can not reach the cable at the front near the pedals. When I go to remove the cable it hangs up which leads me to believe the cable is not broken. I just need to reconnect it to the linkage.

Thank you

It's a tough reach, but you can get your hands in there. There's also an access panel on top of the tunnel up near the front; you'll need to remove the center console (if present) and the tunnel carpeting to see it.

Here's some pictures of a center tunnel cut out from a car:

Here's an exploded view of the pedal cluster, including the cable attachment points:

Pulling the floorboard around the pedals helps with access, and the little door between the seats. If it is not attached to the pedals and won't pull through, see if it is hangin up on the shifter

Here's how I used to get in there: I used a bunch of pillows to lay on coming in from the passenger door. Pull the carpet back on the driver's side, then pull the rubber accelerator pedal off the floor. Next pull the floor board, you will probably need a metric allen wrench and some small sockets. There is a very small opening on top of the tunnel at the very front and uses a phillips screw to secure it.It will help to have a strong light and possibly a mirror so you can see down inside the tunnel and in from the left side. The front of the throttle cable is attached with a snap ball type of connector and has a jam nut on it so you can pop it off with a small screwdriver and pull it up as the ball end has to come off to pull the cable out the rear.

As they say, reassembly is the reverse of the above and it helps to have small hands to snap the ball connector on or use a pair of needle nose pliers. Make sure to use the jam nut. Once the cable is reattached at the front, move the clutch pedal to make sure the new throttle cable is NOT wrapped around the clutch cable! Once you do one, they can be replaced in 30 minutes or less and many 914 owners always carried a spare and the necessary repair tools on long trips.

I just replace my Accel cable on my 74. I used a Terry cable sourced form the hosing site. Very happy with the smoothness. Well worth replacing.
