Hi guys, no posts for a while as ive got twin baby girls lol

 

Problem I've got is before I put my car away in my garage I changed the clutch quadrant for a new one and a new cable, and due to problems fitting the cable I just left it. I know I have washers and clips in the footwell and were they go I can't remember lol.

 

So has anyone got a diagram of the clutch/brake peddles etc? I might have to pull the rod out of both just to fit the cable too I think 😐

 

Thanks guys

Rod shouldn't have to come out to fit the cable mate, I will check my phone as I'm sure I took pictures of mine when I had it in bits for the hydraulic conversion.

Washers left over is never a good thing.

You will need to slide the rod out again to put them back in. Without them the plastic bearings will pop out the pedal when you press it.

Once built up correctly cable replacement is easy. Get the cable on the pedal end first by lifting the pedal up and pushing the quadrant back to hook the cable on.

Then get someone to hold the pedal up (or prop it up with a screwdiver if you are on your own) and get the gearbox end on last.

Cheers
