Clutch issues
« on: May 06, 2014, 04:14:22 AM »
Due to being the family mechanic I have inherited a 96 v6 cally.
Upon investigation I have found that not only is the clutch cable snapped but the pedal is also snapped off on the side of the guides.
I was just wondering if all the pedals where the same throughout the models?
I have pm'd chrisw about getting a new cable only problem is im located in Australia.

Cheers guys

No. Hence nipple or hook ends.

Have you got the pedal end of the cable? If you have then you will know if it's a nipple or a hook on the end that connects to the pedal.

I personally would replace like for like because I'm not sure if the length is different between the two cable and pedal arrangements. The hook type is the most common but later V6s seem to all have the more rare nipple type.

Only problem I can think of is if the length is different you might not have enough adjustment but it might be ok.

PM sent  -   Don't know why but I don't always get emails saying a PM has ben sent to me.

But regarding the pedal itself. I'm not sure you can just replace the pedal, it would have to be a complete pedal box assembly from what I recall. Let me know how you get on and whether you still want a cable sending.
