re: Throttle cable **Sorted**

I've never had to do it myself, but I would disconnect both ends, tightly tie some fishing line to one end of the cable (the pedal end), and pull the cable through (from the engine side).

I'd then attach the new cable to the fishing line and pull it back through the bulkhead.

I would in addition to tying the fishing line to the cable, use a couple of cable ties to ensure it won't slip off the cable.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

re: Throttle cable **Sorted**

didnt want to hijack an old thread so i hope its ok using this is ok posting in here,it is throttle related
i have a clio grande mk2 1998
accelerator cable snapped,so i called renault and thats where everything has gone wrong
took them 2 days to get the so called correct part number as they said nothing was listed on there database so had to make a tech enquiry direct,fair enough i thought,anyway eventually they get back to me and say they have the part number and its on order
cable arrives i pay take it home and its too short,by about 6 inches,which when installed the pedal is so far up i can just about get my foot on it,theres absolutely no adjustment at all
the part number they gave me is 77 00 422 147 and they also told me they do not accept returns,thats another issue,anyway i spoke with them this morning and they cant do anything until at least monday afternoon which dosent really help me as its been nearly a week to get a cable
does anybody on here have any idea on the correct part number or has had any issues like mine and can advise me on the best way to get it sorted please

re: Throttle cable **Sorted**

Have you laid old and new alongside each other?

No returns when they supply the wrong part?

Can't help on specifics sorry.

I have got myself out of immediate problems in past by joining a broken cable with the inner brass bit of an electrical chocolate block terminal. Depends where break is whether possible or not.

re: Throttle cable **Sorted**

the first thing we did was laid them together and the new one is shorter
tried it anyway and it works but the pedal is too high,really awkward to drive,looked on flea bay and it also lists a different part number than the one renault tech says is the correct one
there is a local engineering company near me that make cables etc for bikes and cars
i might just take the old cable and sleeve and get them to make me a new one in the old sleeve which is in perfect condition
