throttle cable replacement - MY99 non e-gas

Recommended Posts

anyone got any info showing the inside of the accelerator pedal with respect to changing the accelerator cable on a non e-gas C2.

i just had mine off and am now doubting myself ref the reassembly of the internal pieces of the accelerator pedal.

mine has two cables into it, one from the top and one out the bottom. each sits on its own 1/4 circle piece and its the relationship between these two pieces thats troubling me with regards how ive put them back.

if you know where this is in the workshop manual then that would be great as i can look it up. ive looked and looked and cannot find it anywhere but cant imagine its not there somewhere.

Ignore 10 to 13 in the diagram as those are for eGas. The bottom portion is what you want.

thanks loren,

i was hoping that somewhere it showed replacing the cables from their pivot wheels inside the pedal housing itself. that diagram from the PET doesnt show info in the internals of the pedal housing where all the cables actually connect.

i do have two cables on mine, i assume the top one goes to the cruise control module, each sits on a 1/4 circle wheel and its these wheels im not sure ive put back in properly.

i watched carefully when removing to aid reassembly however theres a plastic tab on the main accelerator cable wheel that acts against the uppper cables wheel that i couldnt see until i took everything out and its this tabs location that has me concerned. theres not a location for it, it seemed to only fit above the upper edge of this secondary (upper) cable wheel so that the throttle cable being pressed turns this cable wheel also, however while this would seem to be right both in terms of fitting and operation not being 100% isnt filling me with confidence.
