The throttle cable that goes through firewall right next to the brake reservoir, How in the hell do you get it out? Do I need to rip apart my dash? I can only pull on it so much and a little bit comes out, it looks like the cable hooks into firewall and you could pull it all out and switch it out right there.

I pulled plastic peice off underneath the dash, i can see it, but i cant even get my hand up there to unclip it... any suggestions? do i have to take peddle off or what

i guess they expect us to stick our man bear hands in there and pry the clips together, you must have to be a baby to do this because it sure the hell is easier than it looks. I called a garage he said take pliers and push clips together, Out of all my pliers and channel locks, non of them fit in there... the needle nose will but i cant get a good grip on it.

Can i just break the flush side on the firewall side and pull it down through the peddle? this is the only thing keeping my car from seeing the track lol.
