Anyone know how the throttle cable is R/R from top of accelerator pedal??
Bentley shows a circlip, but top of pedal arm has a stout rubber cover, so
can't easily see how it's attached. I have a replacement pedal from SJM and
thought I'd replace it while I have the knee bumper off (rubber footrest is
broken off original pedal).
I had a no start condition and ended up replacing a broken ignition switch
(new one hanging by connector to be screwdriver operated) as the tang broke
off the key/column lock assy. Soldered/jumpered the IC board while I had it
out and replaced all the bulbs in the cluster. I tested it and it runs with
the dash appearing normal and lit up. So far, so good.
My diagnosis included checking the solenoid and the red wire from the
ignition switch had crumbling/stiff insulation. The wire itself seemed
pretty sound yet, but to protect it from water/deicers I painted it with
something called "Liquid Tape" by Performix. After several coats of this
flexible rubber formula expect it to last for years. Seems like a good way
to protect wires with damaged insulation. Anybody else ever use this stuff?
