6 Withdraw the complete accelerator cable into the engine compartment, together with the rubber grommets.

Refitting
7 Refitting of the accelerator cable is a reversal of removal. Make sure that the cable is free of kinks. Adjust it as follows before refitting the air cleaner.

Adjustment
8 Before adjusting the cable, check that it is correctly aligned over its full length.

9 Have an assistant fully depress the accelerator pedal.

10 Check that the clearance between the throttle lever at the carburettor and the fully open stop is a maximum of 1.0 mm. Note that the throttle lever must not be hard against the fully open stop (ie. there must be a small clearance).

11 There are different cable adjustment arrangements which are as follows: a) Where locknuts are provided at the engine end of the outer cable, loosen them then adjust the cable position and tighten the locknuts
b) Where a ferrule and circlip are provided, extract the circlip, adjust the cable position then refit the circlip so that it is abutting the ferrule guide c) On some models, it is necessary to adjust the inner cable by loosening the clamp screw, repositioning the lever while holding the cable taut then tightening the screw
12 After adjustment refit the air cleaner.

Automatic transmission
Removal
13 On automatic transmission models, the accelerator pedal activates the accelerator cable which is attached to the operating lever of the gearbox shift control. This simultaneously operates the throttle cable fitted between the shift mechanism and the carburettor (see illustration).

14 Before removing either cable, select P (Park).

15 To remove the accelerator pedal cable, first loosen the cable adjusting nut then detach the inner cable from the operating lever clevis and the outer cable from its location bracket. The cable can then be disconnected from the pedal and removed in the same manner as that for manual gearbox models.

16 To remove the throttle cable, loosen the adjuster and locknut at the carburettor support bracket, remove the inner cable retaining clip and then disconnect the cable from the carburettor.

17 At the transmission end, prise free the securing clip and detach the cable from the operating lever and the cable support bracket.

Refitting
18 Refitting of both cables is a reversal of the removal procedure.

Adjustment
19 This procedure is described in Chapter 7B.
