HOW TO - Lubricate the Throttle Cable / Replace on a 1.9TD/D
Revellbikes Revellbikes is offline 17-01-10, 18:02

As a complete Car mechanic Novice, I thought I'd share my first real experience of sorting something on my van!

This is an idiots guide to removing the throttle cable for lubrication or replacement on a 1.9TD as they often get extremely stiff. The difference even lubricating makes is amazing! So I would try this first before replacing.


1). Working from the end of the cable which fastens to the engine, unhook the Red section of the cable seen the picture below from its holder.



2). Pull the very end of the cable off where it fastens the the engine. This pulls upwards towards you.



3). Take the cable out of all its holders around the engine.



4). From inside the cab, get your head under - near the peddles. You will see that on the end of the gas peddle there is a hook that clips onto the end of the peddle. Undo this and then you will be able to pull the cable out in the engine bay.



Its in the top right of this picture



Finally just undo the electics that fasten to the cable and you should be able to pull the whole cable free.




5). Either lubricate with a fine lubricant (I used GT85 which I use on my bike cables when they're getting a little stiff), or replace the cable completly.



My first try at a "How to" photo guide aswell. If it helps someone to get their trottle cable

Get a cheap attachment for the spray can tube from any motorcycle shop. The will force the lube down the whole length of cable in about 5 seconds.
Use a chain lube for O-ring chains.

This was a great post. I've just lubricated the cable on my van and I'm in total agreement with the comments about what a difference it makes to the vans performance, they're no exaggeration. Beforehand I honestly thought I'd got an intermittent fault on the pump the performance was that bad. If like me you've taken the cable off before and thought it was alright just spend abit of time cleaning it up to there is literally no drag at all on the cable, I used electrical connector cleaner and finished off with lithium grease, penetrating spray will just clog up in a month or so. Big thanks for the guide. 😊😊

Following website is helpful for searching parts:

I fitted normal 10 cable into ABL engine which had EGR sensor cable and car has never run so great.

There might be some lenght differencies but adjusting part under the pedal and you are good to go.
