Throttle cable with automatic tranny

Has anyone replaced one of these monsters? I found the whole cable and was going to replace the whole assembly until I saw how it is routed between the torque tube and the body. Is the cable only the way to go and how do you make sure everything is adjusted? This cable is on an 87 924s with automatic transmission.

Yes, BTDT ('87 924S Auto). Didn't find it to be too bad; you remove the cable itself (pull it out - mine was 2 strands from breaking) and thread the replacement cable down from the pedal to the engine to the trans.

The replacement cable (mine came with the car) had only the pedal end connection. The lug that grabs the throttle cam was not present, neither was the end for the trans.

I went to the hardware store and got a packet of aluminum cable lugs - crimp-on style. I crimped one barrel in place to grab the throttle cam, and used the other one to splice on the original end at the trans (onto the replacement cable). The throttle cam lug was cross-drilled then threaded on to the cable before crimping in place.

With care, I expect you could probably use generic bicycle cable to effect the same kind of repair even cheaper.

HTH...

Auto Atlanta used to sell the cable w/o the sleeve and fittings.
Try part #944 423 973 03 for the cable.
They might still have them.
They also listed the cable w/sleeve as #944 423 071 03.
The procedure to change it out is listed in the factory manual under the transmission volume.
